The judging process, using an independent panel made up of industry experts, as well as the PAM editorial team, will be based on a mixture of qualitative and quantitative performance indicators, including:
- Financial progress: candidates must be able to demonstrate a performance track-record over the course of the last twelve months
- Growth: client numbers, internal hires and geographic expansion
- Client satisfaction: provide evidence of client satisfaction, including evidence of exceptional service and direct client statements
- Product innovation: details of new services and products launched over the course of 2018/2019
Any additional subjective measures that you believe differentiate your institution within the field of private asset management.
The judging process is rigorous and thorough to ensure that all the entries receive full consideration and that the most deserving winners are chosen.
Judges will take part in a judging conference call, where the winners will be decided. One expert judge per category will be asked to summarise the judges' comments. Judges have discretionary power to move submissions into alternative categories that they think may be more suitable. All judges are required to sign a disclaimer form to keep information about entries and the final winners confidential.
The judges are carefully selected for their wealth of experience and expertise, as well as their absence of conflicts of interest.
PLEASE NOTE: Judges cannot judge any categories that their company has submitted for and are obliged to declare that they have no conflicts of interest prior to judging.
