The Wealth For Good Awards are independently judged based solely on the basis of entrant’s submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which are answered by focusing on the client experience rather than purely quantitative performance metrics. The awards recognize the very best operators in global wealth management with “independence”, “integrity”, and “genuine insight”, the watchwords of the judging process. While the judging process is completely independent of any commercial arrangements between the participants and the organizers, it is expected that winners have an obligation to work with the organizers to promote their award and this obligation is separate to attendance at an awards ceremony. KAR did not pay any fees to participate in the Wealth For Good Awards; however, KAR did pay fees for an advertisement and article placement after it was notified that it won.
