The PAM Awards are designed for investment professionals and wealth advisors, operating within the private asset management industry, who have proved themselves over the course of 2011. The judging process, using an independent panel, made-up of industry experts, will be based on a mixture of qualitative and quantitative performance indicators.  Successful candidates must demonstrate:

1 Financial progress: candidates must be able to demonstrate a performance track-record over the course of the last twelve months
2 Growth: client numbers, internal hires and geographic expansion
3 Client satisfaction: provide evidence of client satisfaction, including anecdotes and direct client statements
4 Product innovation: details of new services and products launched over the course of 2011.

All applicants are encouraged not to exceed 500 words per question. Although the answers will form the basis of the adjudication process, the PAM judges will also consider additional supporting documentation, including case studies.

1 Please provide a summary of your business model, including countries of operation, client numbers and services/products offered.
2 Please provide a summary of how your business has grown in 2011 – including customer numbers and size/growth of client assets
3 How have you developed your chosen category’s offering in 2011? Can you provide examples of product innovation, performance (if necessary, please forward excel sheets with performance figures) and how your company has dealt with the challenges (ex: new regulation) of the last year.
4 Please provide any additional detail in support of your application (max 500 words)
