IQ-EQ wins two awards in 2022 Citywealth Magic Circle Awards

We are thrilled to announce that IQ-EQ has won the ‘Trust Company of the Year Award’ and that our Chairman, Serge Krancenblum, has won the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’.

The Magic Circle Awards is a long running awards programme that looks to celebrate the elite of the international private wealth industry. Winners were revealed at last night’s black tie gala dinner in London, where IQ-EQ senior leaders were in attendance.

For the third year in a row, IQ-EQ has won the highly competitive ‘Trust Company of the Year’ category, reflecting once again the strength of our Private Wealth segment and our continued investment in developing new client-focused service offerings to meet market demand – including IQ-EQ Compass, our integrated ESG service offering, which launched in 2021.

Our Chairman, Serge Krancenblum, has scooped the prestigious ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’, which recognises individual success and commitment to the wealth management industry. From founding SGG Group to building a leading global investor services firm and creating IQ-EQ, Serge is recognised for his leadership throughout the financial services industry and this award is a tribute to his successful career so far.

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

“We’re absolutely delighted to win ‘Trust Company of the Year’ for the third year running. Not only is it a testament to our Private Wealth business, but also to the consistent dedication of our talented teams across the globe. I’d like to say a very big thank-you and well done to everyone working so hard within the Private Wealth segment worldwide. Heartfelt congratulations to both Serge and Team Private Wealth on their richly deserved recognition!”

Commenting on his win, Serge Krancenblum, IQ-EQ Chairman, said:

“It’s an honour to accept this award from Citywealth Magic Circle, and a privilege to be recognised for my contribution to the wealth management industry. As IQ-EQ continues to go from strength-to-strength, I want to thank everyone who makes our success possible.”
