Schillings takes gold at the FWR Awards

Schillings’ industry-leading role in private client service has been recognised at the 2018 Family Wealth Report Awards.

Now in their fifth year, the Family Wealth Awards are regarded as one of North America’s leading private client awards, which exist to celebrate and recognise innovation and excellence across the trusted advisor community. This year the glittering awards dinner was held at the exclusive Mandarin Oriental, New York.

In explaining their decision, the judging panel applauded Schillings for its use of technology and quality of client service, and in particular the firm’s industry-leading role in placing the importance of the human firewall at the heart of its cyber security offer.

Commenting on the firm’s triumph, Allan Dunlavy, Partner at Schillings said: “We are delighted to win this prestigious award which is voted on by so many of the industry’s leaders. This recognition is testament to the hard work that our team of cyber specialists, intelligence experts, investigators, risk consultants and lawyers have put in over the last twelve months, and once again highlights the importance of cyber security as a tactic of a successful reputation and privacy strategy.”

ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of Family Wealth Report, Stephen Harris, commented: “The firms who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. 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.”
