Private Banker International - London Award finalists announced

London Canary Wharf

Private Banker International (PBI) has announced the finalists for the annual Private Banker International Awards: London 2015.

Now in its second year, the PBI London Awards, dedicated mainly to the UK and European markets, have been created to identify leading institutions that are setting new standards in the private banking and wealth management industry.

This year, a record number of submissions came in and the shortlist of finalists underwent a rigorous selection process by the PBI editorial team. A total of 28 firms have been shortlisted across seven different categories.

Shortlisted nominations have been submitted to an expert panel of judges who will decide the overall winner for each of the award titles.

Meghna Mukerjee, Editor of Private Banker International, says: 'We commend the extremely high caliber of submissions this year and would like to express our gratitude to all those who devoted time and effort into nominating their institutions of choice. The UK, and Europe on the whole, are traditional, fast-moving and crucial wealth hubs, and these awards celebrate the best-of-breed players who are shaping this industry.

'We added two new award categories – ‘Best Next Gen proposition’ and ‘Outstanding Philanthropy Proposition’ – and both received a warm response, which highlights their importance in the wealth sector.

'The Awards function will be a great opportunity for industry participants to come together and celebrate achievements, network, and potentially hone their own institution’s strategy and competitive positioning'.

Winners will be announced at the PBI Awards Gala Dinner on 3rd June 2015 at the Waldorf Astoria in London.
