Wealth & Investment – Private Banker International awards
13 October 2020
3 rating

We are proud to announce that Standard Bank Wealth & Investment secured the following recognitions at the Private Banker International Awards 2020:

  • Awarded Outstanding Global Private Bank: Africa
  • Awarded Outstanding RM Training and Development Programme             
  • Highly Commended Achievement for Outstanding Wealth Management Technology Initiative: Back Office 

 Private Banker International is a leading journal for the global wealth industry. The 30th Private Banker International Global Wealth Awards 2020 were held virtually on the 9th of October and attended by influential decision-makers who are shaping the future narrative in key regions across the world.

 This is the fifth consecutive time we have picked up the Private Banker International’s ‘Africa’ award. As the number of HNWIs grows on the continent, so does our presence. We now have 15 wealth and investment offices across the markets in which we operate that serve Africa’s wealthy.

The awards come as markets across the continent and throughout the rest of the globe face pressures due to the impact of Covid-19. In the face of this, our overall guidance to clients has been not to make knee-jerk and emotionally driven portfolio adjustment decisions due to the current market volatility, that in most cases would result in the crystallisation of investment portfolio losses. 

 Shaun Kotwal, Head of Standard Bank Wealth & Investment, comments: “These recognitions demonstrate our ongoing commitment to wealth preservation and excellence. Through our footprint in the African continent and some parts of the world, we provide clients with holistic solutions to meet their on- and offshore financial planning needs. We are committed to building deep and meaningful relationships with our clients by gaining an in-depth understanding of their dreams, goals and ambitions they have for themselves and their families. We are proud to be acknowledged for our offering, and to be the preferred institution of choice on the continent.”
