Methodology

Over 220 investment professionals took part in our UK Wealth Service project, to establish which asset managers consistently delivered the best service. 

The asset managers eligible for consideration were the 37 firms at the UK Distribution Leaders Summit 2017, or one of the top 30 active asset managers in the UK by AUM as at November 2017. 

The  awards are given to the companies that have the highest average score across all territories.

The awards methodology has been independently reviewed and the results audited by AKG Financial Analytics.
