22 September 2010
The Private Client Practitioner Top 35 Under 35 demonstrates that the future of the private client profession, and the wealthy clients it serves, is in good hands. It is important for the future of the industry that there are young, talented individuals, and the Top 35 Under 35 proves that these rising stars are of the highest possible quality.
Competition this year was fierce, with a high level of top quality nominations. In total approximately 380 nominations were received from across the private client advisory professions. These individuals displayed a wide range of talents and areas of specialism, meaning that a variety of clients' needs can be served by those in the Top 35 Under 35. Many are already successfully handling complex matters for clients. The list reflects the variety of skills these rising stars have. Each one of the individuals that made the list, wherever they are based, deserves to be there due to their hard work and dedication to serving the needs of wealthy clients.
