CEO BNP Paribas Wealth Management
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, commented: “The organisations and individuals who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to the winners and to those who have put so much work into each winning submission. Responsible, ethical and sustainable investment outlooks are key to our planet’s future. Diversity and inclusion are key to our societies’ future. Wealth managers have demonstrated that are integral element in the transformation we are seeing all around us and these awards are living proof of this. These awards were independently and expertly judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which were answered by focusing on the client experience rather than purely quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards recognise the very best operators in global wealth management, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process”.
The judging panel added:
“One judge commented that BNP Paribas Wealth Management deserves recognition because it is truly one of the first to integrate philanthropy across all lines. It is continually innovating with new products/services, but most importantly, BNP Paribas Wealth Management listens to clients and has a deep commitment not just to philanthropy but to making philanthropic giving impactful, not just “do good”.
