RBC Wealth Management, part of Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) has achieved top honours in the ‘Wealth Planning Team’ and ‘CSR’ categories at both The Greater China WealthBriefingAsia and WealthBriefingAsia Awards 2021.

Showcasing ‘best of breed’ in Greater China and in Southeast Asia wealth management, the awards have been designed to recognise outstanding organisations grouped by specialism and geography which the prestigious panel of independent judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during the last year’.

Commenting on the firm’s success, Terence Chow, CEO RBC Wealth Management Asia said: “It’s exceptionally pleasing that RBC’s culture of doing what’s right for our clients and communities has been recognised in these awards. With clients, we lead with discovery to truly understand their complex needs and apply our expertise and knowledge to ensure their long term financial health across multiple generations. Similarly, we use our collective resources, talents and energy to bring meaningful value to the communities where we live and work, year after year. I’m immensely proud of our teams.”

ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to all the winners. He said: “The organisations and individuals who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to the winners and to those who have put so much work into each winning submission.

“These awards were independently and expertly judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which were answered by focusing on the client experience rather than purely quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards recognise the very best operators in Asian wealth management, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in Asian wealth management.”
