IMTF Winner of the WealthBriefing Awards 2018

IMTF CROWNED BEST Front Office Solution Provider AT THE WEALTHBRIEFINGASIA AWARDS 2018

IMTF, one of Asia’s foremost RegTech Solution Providers, won a prestigious award at the WealthBriefingAsia Awards 2018. The triumph is yet another milestone in the company’s drive to be recognized as one of the pre-eminent players in the competitive RegTech space.

Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the awards were designed to recognize companies, teams, and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2017’. It was presented during a glitzy gala black-tie dinner, at the Westin Singapore

Commenting on the firm’s triumph, Dr. Andreas Wenger, APAC General Manager, IMTF said: “We are delighted to have been voted the winner of this prestigious award by so many of the industry’s great and good. It is a great honor to be recognized in these awards, and testament to the hard work that the team has put in over the last 12 months. Everyone has really pulled together to ensure we continue to deliver the highest level of service to our clients, and move us that bit closer to our goal of being recognized as the best Solution Provider in the Front Office RegTech space”.

ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to all the winners. He said: “The firms who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards were judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards recognize the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process – such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management. I am optimistic that these annual awards will become one of the brightest highlights in the wealth management calendar.”
