Now in their seventh year, the Citywealth International Financial Centre Awards were established to highlight the excellence of the advisers and managers in the private wealth sector in the major international financial centres. In what has been a period of extreme turbulence and continuing change for clients this is when quality advice is at a premium. It is when the best of the best really stand out.

The awards are judged by an international panel of highly respected practitioners from all sectors with experience of working with advisors in all the jurisdictions covered. The winners will have excelled in achievement, innovation, expertise and service.
