Third Financial Software, one of Europe’s foremost financial software houses was last night crowned ‘Best Risk Management’ at the WealthBriefing European Awards 2015. One of four firms to be shortlisted in the Risk Management category, the triumph is yet another milestone in the company’s drive to be recognised as one of the pre-eminent players in the competitive financial software space.
Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the awards were designed to recognise companies, teams and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2014’. Channel 5’s Emma Crosby presented the awards during a glitzy gala black-tie dinner, at the Guildhall in the City of London.
Commenting on the firm’s triumph, Stewart Foster, CEO, Third Financial Software said: "We are delighted to have been voted the winner of this prestigious award by so many of the industry’s great and good. It is a great honour to be recognised in these inaugural awards, and testament to the hard work that the team have put in over the last 12 months. Everyone has really pulled together to ensure we continue to deliver the highest level of service to our clients, and move us that bit closer to our goal of being recognised as the superior provider in the financial software space”.
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to all the winners. He said: “The firms who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards were judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. 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. I am optimistic that these annual awards will become one of the brightest highlights in the wealth management calendar.”
