More Awards for Expat Financial Advisers deVere Group

deVere Group, which is generally regarded as the world’s biggest financial advisory organisation for expatriates, is continuing its award-winning streak by receiving another two prestigious awards over the past month.

The company has this week been named Best Independent Financial Advisory Team Global 2015 by Capital Finance International (CFI), and deVere CEO Nigel Green has received a 2015 CEO Award from Finance Monthly.

First, the CFI Awards Programme identifies and rewards excellence amongst individuals and organisations, with the aim of motivating and encouraging others to develop and enhance their performance.

Speaking of the win, an understandably delighted Nigel Green comments: “I am absolutely thrilled deVere Group has won the prestigious ‘Best Independent Financial Advisory Team Global 2015’ award.

“It is testament to the ongoing hard work undertaken by our independent financial advisers in every destination in which we operate globally, to provide a world-class results-driven service to every client.”

There is also significant acclaim from the independent CFI judges.

The panel says of deVere’s accolade: “We consider the firm one of only a select few that has both the capacity and the track record to serve investors looking for solid returns on medium to long-term investments while rigorously maintaining risk in check.”

The second of the most recent accolades was attained last month when Nigel Green received a 2015 CEO Award from Finance Monthly.

“The Finance Monthly CEO Awards celebrate the success, innovation and vision of CEOs across various industries and sectors.  For that reason it’s a huge honour for me, as it illustrates our accomplishments to date, and will help to further encourage us to shape the financial advisory sector in every part of the world in which we operate,” said the deVere CEO on being named the winner.

According to Finance Monthly, one of the primary reasons why deVere Group has been successful over the years is due to the personalised management approach: “One of the key triggers to deVere’s success – and a key differentiator from much of its competition – is its single-minded approach to its clients’ needs. The company delivers its services on a one-to-one, case-by-case basis, enabling it to take each client’s individual goals and expectations into full consideration.

“By recognising that each client has different objectives, financial planning can be strategised accordingly. In fact, before making any investment recommendations, deVere advisers will analyse a client’s holistic financial situation and desired outcomes.”

Driven by CEO Nigel Green

As deVere has never been ‘a corporate machine’ it remains as it was from the start: a private company constantly driven by its founder and CEO at the helm to provide the best financial advice to its clients, with some of the top independent financial advisers in the industry.

Nigel Green adds: “We at deVere succeed as a whole because we succeed as individuals who meet individuals and provide an individual, one-to-one world-class financial service. And by maintaining that status-quo, I have brought deVere from a single office to a world-leading financial consultancy that never loses focus on its most important asset:  the client.”

Other awards won by deVere so far this year include the ‘Best Independent Investment Advisory Firm – East Asia 2015’ in the International Finance Magazine Awards 2015; the ‘Excellence in Independent Financial Advice – Global’ Award in the Corporate LiveWire Innovation & Excellence Awards 2015; deVere United Kingdom was recognised in the Business Excellence Awards and named the ‘Best Independent Financial Consultancy Group – UK’ by Acquisition International.

Furthermore, Nigel Green received the ‘Ops Business Person of the Year’ Award by influential media group, FTF News; and the ‘UAE – Gamechanger of the Year (Financial Consultancy)’ Award at the 2015 ACQ Global awards.

So, with countless awards and honours under its belt what’s the next chapter in deVere Group’s story?

With currently over 80,000 clients, and demand continuing to rise on a global level, there are ambitious expansion plans in place to increase the network of more than 70 offices worldwide.  Additional bases in Australia, Africa, Western Europe, North America and Asia are to be launched, as well as the decision to “aggressively expand” the group’s presence in the UK, as announced by Green earlier in 2015.

By using cutting edge technologies throughout the deVere network; attracting fresh talent to the industry through the deVere Graduate Programme; continually upskilling consultants; coupled with exclusive alliances with leading global financial institutions, it would seem that the organisation is set to continue to grow worldwide and could fulfil its CEO’s oft-quoted aim of “becoming the British equivalent of Bank of America Merrill Lynch.”
