As vaccination drives across the world gain momentum, an accelerated economic recovery is on the horizon. Strong fiscal support, steady monetary policies, low interest, and inflation rates have catalysed a nascent recovery that is already gaining momentum. We’re optimistic about the growth and evolution of private banking and wealth management as people gain more trust in a healing economy that will present myriad new opportunities. Private banks and wealth management institutes will need to strike a fine balance between a human-centred and digital approach to serve a millennial clientele with categorically different values, investment outlooks, and spending habits. To assure them that a well-balanced portfolio will continue to appreciate.

The 31st Annual Private Banker International Global Wealth Awards 2021 will recognise and celebrate the most impressive and successful initiatives from private banks and wealth management companies over the past 12 months. The awards will be presented for wide-ranging achievements in wealth management, will recognise leaders in the industry, and recognise efforts to progress private banking.

Amongst the big winners, last year were DBS Bank, Deutsche Bank, Hana Bank, Standard Bank, Al Ahli Bank, Maybank, BNP Paribas Wealth Management, proving that even the most established institutes in the sector continue to adapt and evolve to deliver high-quality services and products to their clients in unprecedented times.
