Bank of the West has been named "Best Private Bank" in North America by Private Asset Management (PAM) magazine that rewards investment professionals and wealth advisors operating within the private asset management industry.

The PAM Awards recognize financial organizations that successfully service high-net-worth individuals in an increasingly complex economic environment.

“This award is a reflection of the commitment and dedication of our entire team in providing outstanding, results-oriented service for our clients,” said John Bahnken, Group Head and Senior Executive Vice President of the Wealth Management Group at Bank of the West. “We've earned a strong reputation as a dynamic team of experienced and tenured advisors who serve as our clients' trusted partners. This award validates that we are hitting the mark.”

A panel of independent industry experts and PAM representatives reviewed the candidate firms and selected winners in each category based on a mixture of qualitative and quantitative performance indicators in four areas, including client satisfaction, growth, financial progress and product innovation.
