Why Nominate

The world of digital assets was conceptualised with the introduction of Bitcoin in 2009, that powered via a decentralised blockchain captured the imagination of users as an alternate digitally-based currency. It proved to be an inflection point in the ongoing evolution of the international financial and monetary system and since then market participants utilising both permissionless and permissioned blockchain networks began to offer to a range of different types of digital assets including crypto, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).

These “virtual records of value” shared securely across a cryptographic ledger has generated an entirely new set of market infrastructures and use-cases as experimentation by various players has unlocked efficiencies, freed trapped liquidity and facilitated the democratisation of finance. Given the pace of technological transformation, new regulations and evolving user preferences the size of digital assets transactions has grown exponentially, attracting new players across the value chain while posing as both a serious challenge and opportunity to incumbent market players.

                  The world’s preeminent Private Banks and Wealth Managers are demonstrating a committed drive in innovation, advisory, new products and services to meet the sophisticated needs of their clients.

                  COVID-19
                  Amid economic activity revival on the back of the Covid-19 vaccine program, organisations moving from business continuity plans to stable working environments, together with the slightest improvement in unemployment numbers, forced the world to adjust to new realities. Coming to terms with the “new normal”, global investors are now on the look-out for attractive and stable investment opportunities.

                  Needs of Private Wealth customers and families worldwide have drastically changed due to the pandemic and banks have had to accelerate efforts to deploy a multi-channel service strategy and safeguard clients’ businesses and wealth against negative impacts of economic uncertainly.

                  The Global Private Banking Innovation Awards will recognise the world’s best private banks, wealth managers and asset managers that are championing innovation across advisory, service, products, customer experience and more.
