Bank of the West has been named Best Private Bank for Client Service by Private Asset Management (PAM) magazine. Designed for investment professionals and wealth advisors operating within the private asset management industry, the PAM Awards recognize financial organizations that successfully service high-net-worth individuals in an increasingly complex economic environment.
"We place our clients at the center of all that we do, so it is very gratifying to receive this recognition from Private Asset Management. An increasing number of new clients are turning to our team, while our ongoing clients continue to express high levels of satisfaction with the advice, solutions and service level that we are able to deliver to them. Their confidence in us is what enables us to win awards like this," said John Bahnken, Group Head and Senior Executive Vice President of the Wealth Management Group at Bank of the West. "We are rapidly expanding the services we provide and draw on the deep knowledge of our team to deliver the banking, investing and advisory solutions that our affluent and high net worth clients have come to expect from Bank of the West."
A panel of independent industry experts and PAM representatives reviewed the candidate firms and selected winners in each category based on a mixture of qualitative and quantitative performance indicators in four areas, including client satisfaction, growth, financial progress and product innovation.
