We are proud to have received significant global recognition over the past decade, having earned 58 private banking awards since 2012.
This year, we have been awarded Best Digital Innovator of the Year in Australasia by Financial Times’ publication Professional Wealth Management (PWM) and again named Best Private Bank Australia at the Global Private Banking Innovation Awards by Global Private Banker. Considered accolades of excellence and distinction, these awards celebrate elite levels of bespoke solutions, including the most innovative products and services for high net worth individuals and their families.
Westpac Private Bank has been named ‘Best Private Bank Australia’ for seven years running by PWM’s The Banker Global Private Banking Awards. These annual awards honour private banks that excel in their business strategy, with a strong focus on product innovation and providing outstanding client experiences.
What makes an award-winning private bank?
At Westpac Private Bank, it is a number of factors:
- Exceptional client experience delivered by a dedicated private banking team
- A dedicated onshore team of lending specialists who are experts in the unique and often complex needs of high net worth clients
- A high net worth investment proposition, providing clients with access to unique institutional and wholesale investment opportunities that are typically out of reach for individual investors due to their offshore location or investment minimums
- A dedicated Chief Investment Officer and highly experienced investment team, to identify local and global market events and the impacts for investors, identifying key themes within these markets and filtering the noise to provide insights and actionable investment ideas
- Creating a team of the best people in the industry, in a high performing and client centric culture
