We are proud to have won three industry awards at the 2020 WealthBriefing MENA Awards.

Citi Middle East and North Africa scooped three major awards at the Seventh Annual WealthBriefing MENA Awards for Excellence 2020. The event, organized by ClearView Financial Media Ltd, was held on the 9th of November in Dubai.

Citi was named Best Private Bank – Client Digital Offering, Best Private Bank – Investment Management Platform, Best Private Bank – Best Wealth Manager Serving Family Offices.

WealthBriefing, the leading subscription-based business intelligence service for the wealth management community, is the supporting publication for the Awards. Independence, integrity and genuine insight formed a major part of the judging process. The judges were both private banks and trusted advisors/consultants in the Wealth Management sector who made the final decision based on feedback and their extensive knowledge in the MENA region for over 16 years.

Mark Mills, Gulf and Middle East’s Head of Citi Private Bank said: “It is an honor to receive these three awards from WelathBriefing MENA. These awards set Citi Private Bank and its team apart from our peers and competition and is a tangible demonstration that we do continue to offer special and carefully designed products and services to our clients. They reward our achievement and show case our top class performance and innovation”.

Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted adviser communities, the awards were designed to recognize companies, teams and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence’.

ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, congratulated all the winners saying: “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 recognize 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."

The WealthBriefing MENA Awards were chosen by the Editorial Team at WealthBriefing who were advised by panels of judges drawn from both private banks and trusted advisors/consultants to the sector. There were a minimum of three submissions for each category. The methodology for each award has not been validated or verified by Citi Private Bank or Citigroup Inc. Citi Private Bank paid a fee to sponsor the awards ceremony which included tickets to the event and a media package. The receipt of an award with respect to a product or service may not be representative of the actual experience of any client, and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.
