Date published: Friday, 31 March 2023
Earth Capital has joined the ranks of an elite global group who have been handed the honour of winning a WealthBriefing European Award.
Earth Capital were awarded the ‘ESG’ award at the Eleventh Annual WealthBriefing European Awards 2023.
Showcasing ‘best of breed’ in the European region, the awards have been designed to recognise outstanding organisations grouped by specialism and geography which the prestigious panel of independent judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during the last year’.
Each of these categories is highly contested and is subject to a rigorous process before the ultimate winner is selected by the judges. It is this process that makes WealthBriefing awards so prized amongst winners.
The WealthBriefing European Awards are part of a global programme run by WealthBriefing and its sister publications WealthBriefingAsia and Family Wealth Report, encompassing all of the world’s major wealth management centres.
Participants around the world recognise that winning awards is particularly important in these challenging times as it gives clients reassurance in the solidity and sustainability of the winner’s business and operating model.
Commenting on the firm’s triumph, Avent Bezuidenhoudt, CEO of Earth Capital, said: "We are incredibly honoured to receive the ESG award from WealthBriefing. At Earth Capital, we believe that sustainable investing is not only the right thing to do but makes good business sense. This award is a testament to our commitment to creating a positive impact through our investments, and we will continue to work towards a more sustainable future for all.”
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, was the first to extend his congratulations to all the winners. He said: “The organisations and individuals who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to the winners and to those who have put so much work into each winning submission.
These awards were independently and expertly judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their responses to a number of specific questions, which were answered by focusing on the client experience rather than purely quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature.”
