LONDON, May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Objectway Financial Software, one of Europe's foremost software suppliers to the wealth management, private banking and advisor communities, is today celebrating its success at last week's WealthBriefing European Awards 2014. One of five firms to be nominated in the Best Front Office Solution category, Objectway walked away with one of two trophies awarded. The prestigious award, Objectway's second major accolade in less than a year, is yet another milestone in the company's quest to be recognised as one of the pre-eminent players in this competitive market space.
Showcasing 'best of breed' providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the WealthBriefing European awards were designed to recognise companies, teams and individuals that the esteemed panel of judges deemed to have 'demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2013'. The BBC's Sophie Raworth presented the awards during a glitzy gala black-tie dinner at the Guildhall in the City of London.
Commenting on the firm's triumph, Objectway's Chief Operating Officer Alberto Cuccu said: "It is a great honour to be recognised in the prestigious WealthBriefing European awards. We are delighted to have our suite honoured as one of Europe's very best wealth management solutions by so many leaders in the industry, who voted for the award. Everyone on our team deserves credit for making our suite worthy of recognition. This award moves us one step closer to our goal of being known as the pan-European leader in the wealth management software 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 recognise 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."
