The awards dinner was held at the Westin Singapore and attended by our CEO, Chi Man Kwan, Managing Director, Kendrick Lee, and Director, Cara Leow.
One of 22 firms to be shortlisted in the Best Independent Wealth Manager category, the triumph is yet another milestone in the Company’s drive to be recognized as one of the pre-eminent players in the competitive Independent Asset Management (IAM) space.
Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the awards were designed to recognise companies, teams and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2019’.
Commenting on the firm’s triumph, Chi Man KWAN, CEO and Founder of Raffles Family Office said: “We are delighted to have been voted the winner of this prestigious award by so many of the industry’s great and good. It is a great honour to be recognised in these awards, and testament to the hard work that the team have put in over the years. Everyone in my company deserves a round of applause because when they are expected to do 1 to 3 but over-delivered 1 to 10 to ensure we continue to create true value to our clients, and that drives us closer to become the Biggest Independent Asset Manager in Asia”.
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefingAsia, 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.
