About the event

wealth-management-awards

Our flagship event, the Spear’s Wealth Management Awards, acknowledges and honours entrepreneurs, philanthropists and others for their innovation, success and outstanding contribution to the wealth management world and beyond. An A list networking cocktail party and awards ceremony, the Spear’s Wealth Management Awards provide a platform for over 500 of Europe’s most influential and wealthiest individuals to celebrate and meet the best and most innovative individuals and companies across the high-net-worth world.

Categories range from Entrepreneur of the Year and Philanthropist of the Year to Private Banker, Family Lawyer and Property Adviser, covering every aspect of the HNW world that matters to our readers. Our shortlists, based on the work of the Spear’s Research Unit, are devised with expert participation and a panel of judges then picks a winner. The event is extensively covered in Spear’s magazine and digitally via Twitter and online at spearswms.com, as well as in key daily newspapers and trade press. The awards will celebrate the very best in wealth management, private banking, law and more.

The awards will this year be hosted by Sky News economics editor, Ed Conway and Spear’s editor-in-chief William Cash.

Ed Conway, Sky News Economic Editor

Conway was formerly an economics correspondent for the Daily Mail newspaper, followed by the Economics Editor of the Daily Telegraph and the Sunday Telegraph newspapers. He joined Sky News in August 2011 as its first-ever Economics Editor, to cover the financial crisis and Great Recession, as well as the euro crisis. He has covered many stories, including the G20 plan for a Greek Euro currency default, to effectively default on half of its debt, and that the IMF had plans to double the size of its rescue fund.

 

The History of Spear’s

In 2006, when Spear’s launched, there was nothing in the market like it. No brand which spoke to both London’s HNW/UHNWs and the wealth management community who serve their private client needs. No magazine that understood their specific concerns as well as having an eye for the more pleasurable and finer aspects of becoming a member of the HNW and UHNW world. Today, there is still nothing like Spear’s.

The Spear’s Wealth Management Awards 2017 promise to be a spectacular celebration of this landmark. The 2016 Awards were hailed as the best in Spear’s history, but we intend to make them even better: the winners even more innovative and successful, the guests even starrier and wealthier. There won’t be another opportunity for you like the Spear’s Wealth Management Awards 2017.
