Sovereign Group is delighted to have won the ‘International Retirement Provider’ category at the influential International Adviser Global Financial Services Awards 2019, which identify excellence across the industry.
Beating off stiff competition, Sovereign was recognised for its “innovation, continued investment, service and commitment to the industry sector”.
The award was presented to Sovereign CEO Gerry Kelly at a gala dinner in London’s JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel on 17 October attended by over 150 industry representatives.
“We are delighted to have received the International Retirement Provider award, which is a testament to the strong and hard working teams in Sovereign’s retirement planning offices,” said Kelly.
“Sovereign continues to invest both in product development and systems. We have recently committed significant resources to upgrade our retirement planning software with the aim of improving the service for clients who reside in over 130 countries.”
Sovereign was also nominated in two other categories. Sovereign Group was shortlisted in the ‘International Trust and Estate Planning Firm’ category while its Malta-based Kemmuna QROPS was shortlisted in the ‘Best International Retirement Product’ category.
This is the third time that Sovereign has been recognised for its products and services at the International Adviser Global Financial Services Awards. It was named the best International Trust and Estate Planning Firm in 2018 and the best International Retirement Provider in 2016.
