Herbert Smith Freehills was awarded Outstanding Contribution to Thought Leadership at the Fifth WealthBriefingAsia Awards on 1 June 2017.
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 2016’.
The Judges' comments noted: "this firm has been an active member of the Hong Kong private wealth community and made a substantial contribution of their ‘know how’ and expertise over many years. The award is well merited."
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."
