Monday January 17, 2014 (Chicago)-- Backstop Solutions Group (BSG), the leading provider of web-based solutions for the institutional investment community, has announced that the firm has been shortlisted for the Family Wealth Report Awards. Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the awards were designed to recognize companies, teams and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have "demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2013."
“We are truly honored to be recognized for this prestigious award,” stated Geoff Surkamer, global head of sales and marketing for Backstop Solutions Group. “We have been working really hard as a team over the past 12 months delivering value for our growing base of Family Office clients, so it’s great to be formally recognized for all our efforts.”
ClearView Financial Media’s Managing Director and Publisher of Family Wealth Report, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to the shortlisted firms. He said: “The firms who have been shortlisted in these inaugural awards are all worthy competitors, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards are judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards will recognize the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management. Our aim is to make these annual Awards one of the brightest, and keenly contested highlights in the wealth management calendar.”
Winners will be announced at a gala awards dinner which will be held in New York on 13 March 2014 at The Metropolitan Club.
