The Family Business Advisory Team of the Year category, which was sponsored by Close Brothers Asset Management, had a strong set of finalists, with PwC beating AH Loder Advisers, Banyan Global Family Business Advisors, Deloitte and Oxford Place to the prize.
The Presiding Judges said:
‘PwC’s entry demonstrated outstanding expertise and international reach in the field of family business consultancy. Their Global Family Business Survey and Next Generation programme are evidence of their thorough and well-conceived approach to the complex relationship that family businesses present.’
Chris Maw, PwC Partner and South East Private Business leader said:
‘I’m incredibly proud that we have won the Family Business Advisory Team of the year award. PwC is passionate about family business and we have worked hard to develop propositions that put our clients at the heart of all that we do; this award affirms that we have got it right. Family Businesses are too often the unsung heroes of the global economy, significantly contributing to GDP and providing stable employment for millions, it really is a privilege to work alongside them and support their endeavours.’
