The awards, now in their second year, highlight the work done by the firms in the finance sector from innovative lawyers, advisers and tax specialists to customer-focused accountants, consultants and bankers. The awards are handed out solely on merit and are awarded to only businesses who have been nominated by their clients, peers and industry experts, for their work over the past 12 months.
Michael Bolton, CEO and president of Clayton Euro Risk, said: “We are very excited to see that for the second year in a row, our work is being recognised by our clients and market participants, so we would like to thank them again for their continued support.
"Our overriding philosophy is to commit to our clients and work extremely hard to get the job done to a high standard and delivered within agreed timelines. We aim to achieve this through our expertise in regulation, risk management assessment and also retaining the best people in the jurisdictions where we operate.
"With this philosophy in mind, we aim to achieve for our clients a product that is of high quality and consistent in its approach while maintaining our impartiality. We won this because of our consistency – it’s great that the market has recognised this.”
Speaking about the awards, coordinator, Siobhan Hanley said: “Finance is without a doubt one of the biggest and most widespread sectors we cover at Acquisition International, making competition for these awards particularly strong. Not just any business can be nominated for one of these awards and only the most forward-thinking, committed and results-driven firms, who have consistently produced standout work walk away with one of our prestigious trophies.”
