We’ve picked up two accolades at this year’s WealthBriefing MENA Awards for Excellence. We retained our title of Best Boutique Private Bank for a third consecutive year and were also named Best Private Bank – Overall Client Service.

This is the sixth year running that we have been recognised in these awards, which celebrate the best wealth management operators in the Middle East and North Africa region. This year’s winners were honoured at a gala evening dinner at Dubai’s Sofitel Dubai Downtown on Friday 10 November and private bankers Chris Jones and Greg Smith picked up the awards on behalf of the team.

The WealthBriefing MENA Awards for Excellence are decided by a panel of private banking peers and wealth management’s trusted advisers and consultants, with the editorial team at WealthBriefing selecting the final winners from each shortlist.

For the Best Boutique Private Bank award, the judging panel was particularly impressed by our focus on wealth planning over simply pushing products.  It also commented on our returning expatriate service, which stood out as a strong initiative for the recent challenging times. The client service award acknowledged our dedicated private bankers and our long-term vision and approach.
