BNP Paribas Wealth Management Wins Best International Clients Team and UHNW Team for Europe-based Private Bank by WealthBriefing

BNP Paribas Wealth Management wins the Best International Clients Team and UHNW Team awards for Europe-based Private Bank by WealthBriefing, a premier news and information source for the global private banking industry.

The awards were designed to recognise companies, teams and individuals deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2012'.

Commenting on the awards, WealthBriefing said, “These awards recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence', ‘integrity' and ‘genuine insight' the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management.”

UHNWI individuals demand a suite of products and services which are different from those provided by a typical financial advisor. BNP Paribas Wealth Management has therefore created a dedicated structure and offering - Key Client Group - for its most strategic clients which balances a close personal approach with extensive financial expertise.

Vincent Lecomte and Sofia Merlo, Co-CEOs of BNP Paribas Wealth Management, commented on the results, “Our teams are particularly proud to have been recognised for serving our clients' expectations with the highest degree of expertise. We strive daily to meet those expectations”.
