IQ-EQ was awarded the title of ‘Trust Company of the Year – Hong Kong & Singapore’ at the 2020 Citywealth International Financial Centre (IFC) Awards, which took place in London on Wednesday evening.
The Citywealth IFC Awards were established to highlight the excellence of those operating in the private wealth sector across the world’s major international financial centres. Winners were determined by an international panel of highly respected private wealth practitioners from an array of leading legal and financial firms.
IQ-EQ’s award was collected by our Group Head of Private Wealth, Steve Sokic. He commented:
“This award is a testament to IQ-EQ’s strong reputation and fast growing prominence in Asia. Over the past 18 months we have successfully built scale in the region, with around 550 people now operating across our offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines and Japan. We have ambitious plans for continued growth too, especially in Hong Kong and Singapore given the fast-paced generation and structuring of wealth within these jurisdictions – making this award welcome acknowledgement of our strategic direction.
“I believe the award also reflects the strength of our private wealth segment as a whole. As a Group, we place the utmost value on service excellence and this recognition simply wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and commitment of our private wealth trust professionals. I’d like to take this opportunity to say a big well done and thank you, both to our Hong Kong and Singapore teams and to everyone else working collaboratively across the segment globally.”
