AES International Recognised as Best International Financial Planning Firm

June 24, 2013 - London

Award-winning AES International wins again! AES has won yet another award this year, this time for Best International Financial Planning Firm in the international marketplace.

In the 14th annual award ceremony, Professional Adviser chose to honour firms across the financial services industry who offer leading products and services to clients with cross-border needs. The independent panel of experts completed both quantitative and qualitative assessments against an industry-wide audience. Other winners include Skandia International, Canada Life International, and Zurich International Life with Axa Wealth International, Prudential International, Allianz Worldwide and Axa PPP among the Highly Commended entrants.

COO John Viney commented, "Now clients can see that when they meet Partners who carry the AES International emblem, they are in the safe hands of a pioneering financial advisory firm who offer the best international financial planning in the world. Our Partners are the yardstick against which others are measured for creating a positive change in the lives and futures of hard working, successful clients across the globe."

AES International itself specialises in international, cross-border, in-patriate, expatriate, non-domiciled and offshore requirements and the corresponding additional tax, legal, currency, regulatory and advisory complexities of this market.

Deborah Benn, chair of the judging panel commented, 'It's clear from judging that there is no lack of determination and willingness to ensure products and services meet high expectations. [As winners, AES have] their finger on the pulse of consumer needs and market changes.'

AES International has long been highly regarded within the international financial services marketplace for its unique approach of exporting UK best practice and its defining military principles of knowledge, integrity, and passion and trust which all lend to its continuous award-winning success. This year alone the company has won numerous awards, notably attending the Virgin Sunday Times Fast Track awards event, held at Sir Richard Branson's Oxfordshire home, where the financial services firm took home its trophy for being the 4th fastest-growing UK firm, out of 2.8 million firms, in the Fast Track 100 list as well as the Fast Track 100 Best Management Team award.

Other worthy mentions include a personal invitation to the Accelerate 250 community, comprised of the top 250 UK businesses, by the Prime Minister's Enterprise Minister Lord Young, Finalist stage of the ongoing Ernst & Young Entrepreneurs of the Year business award and Finalist position in the Money Marketing Awards, earlier this year, for both Best Network and Best Recruitment and Development Award.

CEO Sam Instone attributes this latest recognition to the company's continued focus on promoting positive change in international financial services. 'Our persistent drive to transform international, financial services into a profession is making a daily difference in the lives of our clients.'
