Citywire Wealth Manager Awards 2014: Revealed - the six regional winners

We reveal the six wealth offices across the country which advisers voted to be best in class at our annual awards ceremony.  

The methodology

The Citywire Wealth Manager Regional Stars Awards were voted for by hundreds of financial advisers across the UK. These advisers ranked individual wealth management offices on four criteria: Investment outcomes, client reporting, relationship management and efficiency of service.

We split the UK into six key regions – all of which have substantial wealth management communities: Scotland and Northern Ireland, North, Wales and the Midlands, South West, South East and London.

Firms who received enough nominations to be included in the shortlist had their scores averaged with the winner for each region achieving the highest score. Where two firms have an identical score then it is the firm with the highest number of votes that wins.
