Spear’s flagship event, the Wealth Management Awards acknowledge and honour entrepreneurs, philanthropists and others for their innovation, success and outstanding contribution.

Spears Magazine

Over 500 of Europe’s most successful, influential and wealthy individuals gather to celebrate and meet the best and most innovative individuals and companies across the high-net-worth world. The shortlists are drawn from those featured in our annual peer-reviewed series of Spear’s Indices or are put together by expert recommendation. Our categories include Private Banker of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year and Philanthropist of the Year. The shortlists are then critiqued by a panel of experienced judges to arrive at a winner in each category. The event is extensively covered in Spear’s magazine and digitally via Twitter and online at spearsmagazine.com., as well as in the daily newspapers and trade press.
