Welcome to the 15th Professional Adviser International Fund and Product Awards. Now an established part of the offshore calendar, these awards are in honour and recognition of groups who distribute financial products and services internationally.
There is no doubt that while cross border expansion is a route to growth, the practicalities of reaching different markets, diverse client sectors and creating different product lines is not getting any easier.
Dealing with such a wide range of regulatory environments and constantly changing tax rules requires commitment, knowledge and skill. The Professional Adviser International Fund and Product Awards are in recognition of those groups and centres that are constantly striving to meet cross-border financial needs.
Commenting on this year's awards, Chair of the Panel, Deborah Benn said:
"Efforts to improve transparency continue to dominate financial services and we are now seeing a number of financial centres edging towards RDR-style reform as introduced by the UK. Looking ahead, first class offshore solutions will need to provide high levels of regulatory compliance and support, as well as flexible charging structures."
