Today the focus was on the Middle East region, and AES International took home Excellence in Client Services and Excellence in Professional Development, before being named Best Adviser Firm in the entire region.
The awards are voted for by an independent panel of expert judges from the international financial services marketplace, as a result they are highly respected, and represent peer review and endorsement.
The judges made the following comments in respect of each of AES International’s awards: -
Excellence in Client Services: “…very thorough approach to customer segmentation backed up with good quality appropriate services.”
Excellence in Professional Development: “…strong across the board professional development with a sound approach focused on CII qualifications.”

“As an organisation we work exceptionally hard on behalf of our clients, they are why we do what we do.
“It’s fantastic that all that hard work has been recognised by the independent judging panel from International Adviser magazine.
