VIDEO: Meet the winners at the 17th International Fund & Products Awards 2016
In this exclusive video we meet the winners and enjoy a look back at last week’s 17th International Fund & Products Awards 2016.
This video features highlights of the prestigious event held on October 12 at the Four Seasons, Park Lane, London and includes interviews with winners and a full list of awards recipients and those highly commended.
The video also features footage of the awards ceremony, awards compere TV comedian Rob Deering and a host of well-known international investment industry figures enjoying what was heralded as a “fantastic event”.
The event was the 17th since it was launched in 1999 but the first since it became part of Open Door Media Publishing. The event was the first under the International Investment brand that was relaunched as a magazine in April this year.
In his opening remarks Nick Rapley, chief executive at Open Door Media Publishing, told a packed Four Seasons dinner: “Like these awards, International Investment exists to champion all that is good about the industry. We like to make heroes of those product providers and advisers who demonstrate best practice, who seek to raise standards and who put their customers first.
“You will find one of these advisers on the front cover of every issue; this is a deliberate strategy which sets us apart. We are extremely happy with the feedback we are getting so far and our audience grows daily. Build it and they will come; we’ve built it and they are coming!”
“It is nearly a year since we re-launched the website followed by the publication. Next year we will re-launch International Investment events,” Rapley added.
Old Mutual International (three awards) and Canada Life International (two awards), were the biggest winners on the night. And the award’s newest and most hotly-contested category, the Best Best-Practice in Offshore, sponsored by Old Mutual International award, was picked up by Aisa International.
