International Investment has announced six new categories as part of a relaunched International Investment Awards to celebrate their 20th year. The II Awards will now take place on Wednesday 16 October 2019, at Gibson Hall in the City of London.
The new categories, in a full list of 20, are:
- Excellence in International Private Banking

- Best Family Office
- Excellence in Client Service (regional)
- International Campaign of the Year
Alongside a new identity and new categories comes a change of name, with the International Fund and Product Awards being simplified to the International Investment Awards.
The Awards will now take place on Wednesday 16 October in the magnificent Gibson Hall in central London."
A new date has also been set: the Awards will now take place on Wednesday 16 October in the magnificent Gibson Hall in central London.
Christopher Copper-Ind, publisher of International Investment, explained the thinking behind the change of name: "International Investment has grown rapidly in recent years, and our coverage and partners are no longer solely defined by fund managers and fund products.
"IFAs and wealth management remain central to our coverage, yet this is increasingly being joined by rising sectors such as fintech and AI, and a broader international focus on asset management, private banking, citizenship and expatriate issues.
"The new name will enable us to better launch categories and ensure this global event properly reflects the diversity and breadth of the industry it serves."
