Each year, International Adviser, in association with AILO, seeks to recognise the product and service providers going to extra mile for financial advisers and their clients.
In the past, we have kept the nominations process quite contained – but have decided to open it up this year to canvass all advisers, wealth managers and other intermediaries who use cross border products and services.
Our deadline has now been extended to 17 September to give you more time to nominate the firms you feel deserve recognition.
How does it work?
The nominations process is only open to users of these products and services – not the providers themselves.
In the survey link at the bottom of the page, you will be asked to nominiate a maximum of three companies per category. You do not need to complete every category – only the ones relevant to your business and service offering.
Award categories include ‘International Platform of the Year’, ‘International DFM of the Year’, ‘International Life Group of the Year (UK and non-UK)’.
Your nominations will help produce a shortlist. As with previous years, firms included on the shortlist will then be asked to provide a supporting statement about why they should win a particular award. The final winners will be selected by our panel of judges.
This year, we have added an award to recognise a provider that has really stepped up to the plate to support the industry as it struggled to get to grips with working in a covid world. This could be, for example, a support service, an innovative product, enhanced contact, greater flexibility – something that a business has done that really made a difference to advisers and clients.
You will be asked to provide your name and email address for verification purposes only. This is to ensure the integrity of the process.
