IQ-EQ’s Hong Kong and Singapore offices recognised by Citywealth IFC Awards for second year

IQ-EQ has been awarded silver for ‘Trust Company of the Year – Hong Kong & Singapore’ in the 2021 Citywealth International Financial Centre (IFC) Awards. This is the second year running that IQ-EQ has landed this title, having grabbed gold in 2020.

The Citywealth IFC Awards were established to highlight the excellence of those operating in the private wealth sector across the world’s major IFCs. Winners were selected by an international panel of highly respected private wealth practitioners from an array of leading legal and financial firms.

Commenting on our win, Peter Golovsky, IQ-EQ’s Managing Director and Head of Private Wealth for Asia, said:

“Our Private Wealth business in Asia has gone from strength to strength over the past year and this award is a very welcome testament to that. Following IQ-EQ’s global Family Office Services launch in June 2020, our Asian offices have seen a significant uptick in enquiries from single- and multi-family offices interested in this full support offering, which includes leveraging not only our global fiduciary services but also key data via our unique and innovative IQ-EQ Cosmos reporting platform. We’ve also swiftly become one of the top administrators for Singapore VCCs since the regime’s launch at the start of 2020, with client mandates coming from family offices as well as fund managers.

“I’m proud to say that IQ-EQ is increasingly standing out in the Asian private wealth sphere for our uniquely comprehensive offering to the region’s (ultra-)high-net-worth families and entrepreneurs and their fast-evolving family offices. I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge well done to our local teams for their amazing efforts over the past year, without which this award would not have been possible.”
