Spear’s Wealth Management Awards 2019: The nominees for the ‘private client Oscars’

The nominees for the private client world’s most anticipated awards have been announced

The winners of the 2019 Spear’s Wealth Management Awards, the private client Oscars, will be announced on 14 November.

Now in their 12th year, the awards are being held at Skinners’ Hall in the City and will be presented by Sky News economics editor Ed Conway, who returns to the event for a fourth consecutive year.

The nominees have been selected on the basis of a year’s worth of research that has been carried out to produce the market-leading Spear’s Indices. The 2019 Spear’s Wealth Management Awards will recognise leading figures in categories including: Wealth Management, Tax advisers, Family Law, Reputation Lawyers, Philanthropy Advisers and Family Office Services Providers. There will also be special awards to recognise the Spear’s Philanthropist of the Year, who last year was named as Guy Hands, and Entrepreneur of the Year. The coveted Outstanding Achievement Award, which was won by Cerno Capital’s Nick Hornby last year, will once again be bestowed upon a truly exceptional individual.

Spear’s editor-at-large William Cash, who chaired the rigorous final selection process with a trusted panel of judges, is thrilled by the calibre of the shortlisted professionals for the prestigious awards. ‘The quality of talent and client service in evidence clearly shows that our advisers have achieved notable success, despite what many perceive to be a particularly challenging year,’ Cash said. ‘The private client industry, once again, showcases a cornucopia of talent that will help London retain its position as the global financial capital of the world.’

Alec Marsh, editor of Spear’s, added: ‘I would like to congratulate each of the nominees, and once again thank the expert judges, who joined us in our judging day at Ten Trinity Square, for their time and insight. I would also like to thank everyone who took time to enter the awards and our partners for the night.’
