Kin Capital is proud sponsor of the Wealth Manager of the Year Award at the 2018 Growth Investor Awards, taking place on 7 November at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London

Open to any organisation or individual putting investment to work in SMEs, the Growth Investor Awards recognise those enabling start-up and scale-up businesses to realise their full potential and drive Britain’s economy.

Richard Hoskins, Co-founder, Kin Capital said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring ‘Wealth Manager of the Year’. The Growth Investor Awards have quickly established themselves as one of the leading industry awards to win, recognising the investment managers and advisers who are driving innovation in the UK Venture Capital Scheme sector. At Kin, we are committed to building lasting relationships with managers and advisers.”

The Wealth Manager of the Year award recognises wealth management companies which expertly utilise and actively promote alternative investments. Particular credence is given to how they optimise research and education, apply expertise to add value for clients, and how they promote such investments as part of their proposition. Kin Capital, given its dual prominence in fundraising and fund management in the tax-efficient investment industry, is ideally placed to support the award.

UBS has been named Wealth Manager of the Year for the last two years in a row, winning praise for its commitment to advising clients on appropriate risk exposures, goals-based assessment of investor appetite, and strong due diligence processes. They were closely followed by Canaccord Genuity Wealth as runner up and Westminster Wealth being named ‘One to Watch’ for this year.

All entries are subject to a two-stage judging process, which sponsors are not involved in. After drawing up an initial shortlist to identify finalists for each category, they are then submitted a second round of judging with a panel of at least three judges ensuring a robust assessment.

More information about how to enter, categories, the selection process and previous winners is available on the Growth Investor Awards’ website:
