Showcasing "best of breed" providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the Family Wealth Report Awards recognize companies, teams and individuals, which the prestigious panel of judges deem to have "demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2013." 

"FinaMetrica's risk profiling solution has attracted widespread international acclaim and usage," said FinaMetrica Co-founder Geoff Davey. "The web-based risk tolerance test operates in 23 countries and is offered in seven languages. The test is easy to do and takes respondents just 15 minutes to complete. The respondents risk tolerance report is produced immediately, with a score of between 1 and 100. Unlike other inferior competing products, FinaMetrica's test is objective and backed up by statistical analysis that makes it valid, reliable and accurate."

Commenting on the firm's award, FinaMetrica Co-founder Paul Resnik said, "We are delighted to be recognized by Family Wealth Report for our risk profiling solution. Advisers tell us that getting risk tolerance right is critical to their clients' successful investment experience. We have developed our test and risk communications in conjunction with some of the most successful professional advisors and academics on the planet. The FinaMetrica methodology has been designed to ensure clients have the best investment experience possible despite the tribulations of the markets."

According to ClearView Financial Media's Managing Director, and Publisher of Family Wealth Report, Stephen Harris, "These awards are judged solely on the basis of entrants' submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics.  That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature.  These awards recognize the very best operators in the private client industry, with 'independence', 'integrity' and 'genuine insight' the watchwords of the judging process – such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management."
