We are proud to announce that our Group CEO, Serge Krancenblum, has been named ‘European Personality of the Year’ at the 2018 Funds Europe Awards, held on 1 November at the Tower of London.
The Funds Europe Awards, now in their fourteenth year, set out to recognise personal and company achievements and contributions within the European funds community and to credit publicly those who have advanced the cross-border agenda in the funds industry.
Commenting on his award, Serge Krancenblum said:
“I am pleased and honoured to accept this award and to join the prestigious list of past recipients. A very special thanks to the members of the judging panel and Funds Europe who have selected me.
“I founded SGG Group with a partner 20 years ago and I am so proud of what the company has achieved. We are one of the main consolidators of the market and the firm is among the world’s four leading independent investor services firms thanks to our strong organic growth and ambitious buy-and-build strategy.
“One of my main passions has always been to leave as a legacy a sustainable global firm that creates value and has a positive impact on the community. At SGG, we have been able to implement a number of initiatives such as our collaboration with Epic Foundation, where we are helping charities that support the education of underprivileged children, and the creation of the SGG Crossroads conference, which is a thought-provoking platform to question the impact of the financial industry. I am privileged to have a great team around me to help me deliver upon my ambitions to make an even greater impact in the future, and I would like to share this award with them.”
Based in Luxembourg, Serge is SGG’s Group Chief Executive Officer. In his role, he ensures that the organization has the capacity and clarity to deliver on its global mandate: client service excellence, sustainable growth, and efficiency, across all of its offerings.
Throughout his career, Serge has deepened his expertise in developing and managing transnational solutions for institutional investors, multinational corporations and entrepreneurial families. He is recognized for his leadership throughout the financial industry, and is frequently invited to speak at local, national and international events. He also sits as an independent director on the boards of several real estate and private equity funds, as well as on those of selected listed and private companies. Serge is additionally the chairman of the Investment Facilitation Forum, a platform for organizations involved in foreign direct investment at a global level.
