ABN AMRO Private Banking was last night named ‘Best Overall European Private Bank’ at the WealthBriefing European Awards 2016, as well as ‘Best Private Bank – Client Service’.
Judged by a panel of senior executives of international private banks, industry consultants and WealthBriefing editorial staff, ABN AMRO Private Banking was recognized for showcasing ‘best of breed’ global private banking and wealth management, having ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2015’.
Jeroen Rijpkema, CEO of ABN AMRO Private Banking International, said: “Receiving these awards is further motivating our efforts to continuously improve our services and products for clients. Also, it is a recognition of our multi-brand strategy which includes well established private banks in Europe – alongside an integrated global network, enabling us to provide the best service to our clients”.
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to all the winners. He said: “The firms who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards were judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management. I am optimistic that these annual awards will become one of the brightest highlights in the wealth management calendar.”
