IQ-EQ grabs gold at the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards 2020

We are thrilled to announce that IQ-EQ has won two gold awards at the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards for 2020 – including ‘Trust Company of the Year’.

The Magic Circle Awards aim to celebrate the best of the best within the global private wealth industry.

IQ-EQ has won Gold for:

  • Trust Company of the Year
  • Software Innovators of the Year

Winning ‘Trust Company of the Year’ is a welcome testament to the scale and breadth of our global Private Wealth service offering and the ongoing development of our vast array of client-focused service enhancements, including the launch of our Family Office Services offering earlier this year.

Meanwhile, the Gold award for ‘Software Innovators of the Year’ specifically recognises our innovative Investor Solutions offering powered by IQ-EQ Cosmos, which is unique in the market as a service-centric investor reporting and portfolio monitoring solution that combines a highly customisable, multi-asset class reporting tool with expert in-house technical and technological support.

This latest recognition came on the same day as our Funds segment’s win in the 2020 Funds Europe Awards (making for a very exciting Thursday!) and closely follows our ‘Best Independent Trust Company’ win in the 2020 WealthBriefing European Awards last month.

IQ-EQ’s Group Head of Private Wealth, Steve Sokic, said:

“We are delighted to have won these two titles in the Magic Circle Awards, which recognise not only the strength of our Private Wealth business but also our group’s innovative technology offering. We continue to pursue new service developments, such as the launch of our dedicated Family Office Services offering earlier this year, while looking to expand our presence and service offering in Asia and the Americas. We have had a great year on the awards front, which would not have been possible without the continued hard work and dedication of our worldwide teams, so I would like to share my gratitude and thanks with them all for helping to secure these accolades.”

IQ-EQ’s Executive Director of Investor Solutions, Hugh Stacey, added:

“I am very proud of the recognition that our cutting-edge IQ-EQ Cosmos platform has achieved. Over the past 18 months, we have welcomed an exciting array of new business mandates from new and existing clients alike, with many new opportunities arising from IQ-EQ’s growing global network. We have invested significantly into the platform and continue to make improvements in line with client feedback – including the addition of ESG reporting metrics and a bespoke dashboard for family offices. Although this award specifically recognises our unique market offering, it also reflects the calibre of our hard-working and highly skilled Investor Solutions and technology teams who go above and beyond in ensuring the platform’s success.”
