London (PRWEB UK) 26 June 2012
AES International has been recognised in the 2012 Professional Adviser International Fund and Product Awards with a highly commended accolade in the Best International Wealth Provider category.
Commenting on their reasons for awarding this palm, the judges praised AES International for being a ‘firm that takes due diligence and regulation seriously. An impressive entry that points to a highly professional approach to providing services to international clients, according to the judges. A good holistic ethos applied to wealth management that offers a clear structure and well managed approach to investment management services targeting international clients.’
In her general assessment of the review process, Deborah Benn, chair of the judging panel said: “There is little doubt that the past 12 months has possibly been the toughest year yet for the offshore industry. Not only has the ongoing backdrop of difficult economic conditions taken its toll, but higher than normal regulatory pressures have been evident this year. Yet despite this, entries have displayed a refreshing determination to keep up high standards of service which has impressed the judges. In particular, this year’s winners and highly commended entries have really shone.”
AES International CEO Sam Instone attributes this latest recognition to the company’s sustained focus on promoting positive change in international financial services. ‘Our relentless drive to transform international financial services into a profession is daily making a difference in the lives of our clients and advisers.
‘This endorsement is yet another confirmation that the professional approach is the way of the future. We’re delighted to receive this recognition.’
