Private Banker International is now accepting nominations for its annual awards ceremony in October.

 

The awards, now in their 19th year, have become synonymous with the most distinguished private banking performers, and are known as the industry’s most prestigious accolades. All of the details on the awards categories, and how to nominate your own and other banks, are provided on page three.

Last year’s winners included a host of banks and private bankers that have continued to excel in 2009. The most topical among them is Boris Collardi, the 34-year old Julius Baer COO who recently became CEO of the bank – the youngest ever head of a leading Swiss private bank (see Julius Baer plays its ace card). Collardi was awarded PBI’s Outstanding Young Private Banker award at the ceremony, last year held in Singapore’s St Regis Hotel.

This year, no wealth manager has been able to completely sidestep the financial crisis. Yet Credit Suisse, awarded last year’s top award for Outstanding Private Bank – Global, has continued to draw in client money and is attracting talent and clients from UBS. It has also continued to invest in staff, in particular hiring big-hitters in the ultra high net worth area.

Like last year, the awards come in the middle of a two-day conference organised by VRL, publishers of PBI, providing networking opportunities with global private banking heads and presentations on key industry themes.
