    Lombard Odier wins prestigious GCC Private Bank of the Year Award

    At Lombard Odier, we are solely dedicated to managing our clients’ wealth, not just for now but the long term. We are proud to have won the prestigious ‘Overall GCC Private Bank’ award at the 2017 WealthBriefing GCC Region Awards ceremony on 8 November 2017. This award win reinforces our dedication to the Gulf Cooperation Council region.

    For over 50 years we have served clients in the region, and have won ‘Best UAE Private Bank’ (International) for the past two years and have won four other awards over the last six years. By developing a number of initiatives, we have further shown our committed to the wider GCC region in 2017. This includes investment in our workforce, strengthened links with local institutions, offering additional new services such as succession planning and relocation expertise, and significant growth in Islamic investments to cater to local demands.

    Arnaud Leclercq, Partner, Lombard Odier Group, who heads new markets and the Middle East, commented:

    While growth is important to us as a bank, what is more important to us is to ensure that we are serving each of our markets with the highest industry standards. We do this by ensuring our diverse and valued customers receive the services and solutions that address their specific needs from experts of the highest calibre. For Lombard Odier, the pace at which we grow is important but the depth that we reach within our regional presence across our markets surpasses this priority and we are delighted that this has been recognized with the prestigious award from WealthBriefing

    Also present at the awards ceremony was Christophe Lalandre, Managing Director of Lombard Odier in Dubai, who manages our presence in the UAE. Reflecting on the award, Lalandre said:

     The prestigious ‘Overall GCC Private Bank’ award is a testament to our growing presence and allegiance to the entire region as we look to deepen our client relationships with tailored offerings that are important to our unique customers. The award complements another successful financial year for the bank with the GCC region continuing to be one of the bank’s fastest growing markets as regional investors seek expert guidance amid a very turbulent global investment landscape

    The judging panel evaluated nominee independence, integrity and genuine insight, and included experts from both private banks and trusted advisors/consultants to the sector. Award categories were focused around three main areas; experts (individuals and teams), products, and services for wealth managers and clients/institutions of all sizes and types.

    Held at the Taj Hotel in Dubai, this award is another example of our commitment to our clients.  Earlier this year, we were awarded best bank in wealth management in Western Europe by Euromoney, the leading global financial publication, at its 2017 annual Awards for Excellence. Also in 2017, we were honoured with two awards at the annual WealthBriefing European Awards 2017 in London with ‘Best Marketing/PR Campaign’ and ‘Best Customer Facing Digital Capabilities’ for the UK private bank.
