PBI Global Wealth Awards 2021 winners announced!

Another year and the competition gets even hotter as Private Banker International is proud to present the winners of the 2021 PBI Global Wealth Awards.

The 2021 edition of the PBI Global Wealth Awards received entries from around the world representing four continents highlighting the best-in-class wealth management and private banking companies. The awards were judged across five category groups and recognised those organisations and individuals who showcased innovation, speed and efficacy of delivery and most importantly an exemplary commitment to customer needs and over-all contribution to the individual and larger community.

Among the key takeaways from the awards submissions in 2021 has been the resilience of the regional banking industry and their ability to develop innovative solutions, and deliver new offerings in record times to help combat the financial implications on their customers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The awards are recognised four key groups, namely:

  • Institutional Awards
  • People Awards
  • Service Proposition Awards
  • Strategy Awards
