Leading wealth management industry participant, WHVP, has joined the ranks of an elite global group who have been handed the honour of winning a WealthBriefing Award. We were awarded ‘Best Client Communications & Overall Digital Engagement’ and Jamie Vrijhof-Droese was awarded ‘Thought Leadership’ and ‘Rising Star Under 40’ at The Third Annual WealthBriefing Swiss EAM Awards 2023.
Showcasing ‘best of breed’ in the Swiss region, the awards have been designed to recognise outstanding organisations grouped by specialism and geography which the prestigious panel of independent judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during the last year’. Each of these categories is highly contested and is subject to a rigorous process before the ultimate winner is selected by the judges. It is this process that makes WealthBriefing awards so prized amongst winners. Participants around the world recognise that winning awards is particularly important in these challenging times as it gives clients reassurance in the solidity and sustainability of the winner’s business and operating model.
The judge’s note that the winner WHVP has defined a clear digital strategy by using different channels to engage with its clients. The firm’s informative presence online is noted by potential and existing clients. “A true pioneer amongst the Swiss External Asset Managers”, commented one of the judges.
Commenting on the firm’s triumph, Urs Vrijhof-Droese, Managing Partner at WHVP, said: "We are thrilled and honoured to have won several WealthBriefing Awards for the third year in a row now. This recognition is a testament to our commitment to providing innovative and effective wealth management solutions to our clients in the United States and around the world.
We are also extremely proud of Jamie Vrijhof-Droese for being awarded 'Thought Leadership' and 'Rising Star Under 40'. This is a great accomplishment that reflects Jamie's dedication to excellence and her contribution not only to our company's success but also as a leading voice of the industry.
Winning these awards is particularly meaningful as it underscores our mission to deliver exceptional value to our clients through outstanding communication, service, and expert advice. We are grateful to the independent judges who recognized our efforts and congratulate all the other winners who demonstrated excellence in their respective fields.
We believe that this award will give our clients further confidence in our business and operating model and reaffirms our commitment to delivering exceptional value to them. We are excited to continue pushing the boundaries of wealth management and remain focused on providing our clients with best-in-class solutions."
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to all the winners. He said: “The organisations and individuals who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to the winners and to those who have put so much work into each winning submission.
These awards were independently and expertly judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which were answered by focusing on the client experience rather than purely quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards recognise the very best operators in Swiss wealth management, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in Swiss wealth management.”
