Rothschild & Co is delighted to announce that it has won the Client Relationship Award at the Spear's Wealth Management Awards 2021. Charles Costa Duarte, who co-heads a client team in the UK, was also shortlisted as UHNW (ultra-high-net-worth) Wealth Manager of the Year.

The Client Relationship Award, in its inaugural year, recognises the firm or team which has demonstrated an outstanding ability to provide a truly excellent bespoke service to UHNW clients.

James Morrell, Managing Director, Rothschild & Co’s UK Wealth Management business said: “Our clients expect the best and we seek to exceed their expectations. We have very consciously sought to ensure a culture which puts clients and exceptional service at its centre. The Spear’s judging panel are real experts in the private client universe, so their independent recognition of how our service levels set us apart is particularly important. Another way we can judge successful client service is positive feedback from clients themselves. We have enjoyed record levels of referrals from clients in recent years, which is a huge compliment.”

The judges commended Rothschild & Co’s Wealth Management team for successfully embedding a culture of exceptional client service throughout the business, being innovative and striving to always see things from a client’s perspective. The panel noted the firm’s inclusion of client service objectives in every individual’s performance review, the establishment of the Exceptional Client Service Committee and ‘adopt-a-client’ initiatives, enabling colleagues to build client relationship strategies together, resulting in impressive retention and referral rates.

Spear’s is a highly regarded wealth management and luxury lifestyle media brand, whose flagship magazine is targeted at UHNW individuals and the financial services community. It’s annual Wealth Management awards, which recognise the best wealth managers, lawyers, property advisers, accountants, family office service providers and private banks servicing wealthy clients, were launched more than ten years ago and attracted a record number of entries this year.
