Elsa Pau, Publisher and CEO of WealthAsia Media, organizer of the Awards, was delighted by the exceptional performance of this year’s awardees, “Throughout the years, we have made our judging criterion progressively tougher each year. Not only have the winners passed our public surveys, employees, endorsements, social media surveillances, they have also survived the scrutiny by our esteemed jurors.”

She added, “This year is also the last to celebrate all three segments of wealth management providers under one gala celebration, as we are moving the prestigious branding of this award across the Asian region to recognize service providers of the three unique wealth management product categories: Affluent Client, Private Client, and Wealth Protection, beginning the year 2017.”
