Katherine Ellis, Group Business Director of Boston Multi Family Office, has won a prestigious Women in Wealth Management (Individual Contribution) Award at the European WealthBriefing Awards held at the Guildhall in London.
Showcasing the best providers and individual contributors in the world of global private banking, wealth management and financial advice, the WealthBriefing awards are designed to recognise those who have demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2016. The panel of expert judges said they were “greatly struck” by the range of Katherine’s “accomplishments, achievements and commitments to the industry”, adding: “She is an exemplar to us all.”
Boston CEO Alex Fray said that Katherine’s win was thoroughly well deserved: “Katherine’s wide experience in the luxury asset market, combined with her drive to develop and secure new business for Boston, puts her clearly at the front of her chosen field. She is a highly motivated individual, whose enthusiasm is infectious, and we are all thrilled that she has received such tremendous recognition.”
Also congratulating Katherine on her success, Stephen Harris, CEO of ClearView Financial Media which publishes WealthBriefing, said: “These awards recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with independence, integrity and genuine insight the watchwords of the judging process.”
Judging is based on a submission that required responses to a number of specific questions, he added, which had to be answered focusing on client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. This unique approach, said Mr Harris, meant the awards “truly reflect excellence in wealth management.”
The black-tie event was attended by an audience of private bankers, lawyers, accountants, financial advisors and technology providers from across the wealth management sector. Commenting afterwards, Katherine said: “Nobody can excel in this complex field alone and I am privileged to be surrounded by exceptional individuals with a real passion for the work they do.
“Many of those amazing people are women and I am really lucky to be part of a supportive company with a diverse board and work environment.”
