30th Annual Private Banker International Global Wealth Summit and Awards 2020

207 people attended
Bringing together global private banking and wealth management leaders from around the world.

Last year, the Private Banker International Global Wealth Summit and Awards brought together almost 250 key industry stakeholders from across the region to discuss and understand the important market forces shaping the world of private banking. This is the annual meeting place of the most senior names in the industry and offers exclusive insight into the strategies of the worlds’ leading banks.
 Spurred by a shift in the traditional customer base, represented by a younger demographic and the growth of family offices, and the sudden curveball thrown by the current global health crisis; it has become imperative for private banking institutions to build upon structured products to ensure future demands from social movements and behavioural changes are met.
Some of the discussions at the 2020 edition will revolve around the state of the market and how to ensure business continuity in a post-COVID world; digital innovation in private banking and wealth management; the rise in demand for socially responsible investment strategies and managing wealth across generations; with compelling case studies and presentations to decode current trends by industry experts and leading wealth managers.

The virtual summit will be conducted alongside an awards presentation to celebrate the most impressive and successful initiatives from private banks and wealth management companies over the past 12 months. Awards will be presented for wide-ranging achievements and will highlight leaders in the industry and efforts to progress private banking.

Private Banker International (PBI) is an editorially independent briefing service aimed at banks, financial services companies, related intermediaries, and technology vendors in the private banking and wealth management sector. Together with our colleagues at Arena International (UK), Middle East Economic Digest (Dubai), and GlobalData (Singapore), we have curated a virtual summit providing opportunities to network and participate in informative, pertinent discussions combined with an online awards presentation celebrating the best of the industry.

This event is a must-attend for finance strategists and professionals looking to build a strong network within the elite private banking community, hear about their market-leading and disruptive approaches and meet the teams that delivered globally recognized strategies and products.
