This award is a true vindication of the strength of our business holistically in the region.

The judges considered many aspects of our business and service offering, including our more than half-century commitment to clients in the Middle East; our single, international team covering the market in an integrated way; and our bespoke wealth management approach. Our awards submission focussed on two key recent developments – the launch of our innovative mandate in Islamic finance and our expansion in Abu Dhabi, with a new branch that brings us closer to clients in one of our fastest-growing business regions.

Best Islamic Finance2 Compliant Wealth Management Offering

This award recognises the stand-out features of our mandate in Islamic finance – a holistic offering which is fully customisable for our clients. This mandate draws on our long heritage as a responsible investor, and gives clients seeking Islamic solutions access to the full capabilities of Lombard Odier as a global wealth manager. It can be built using any mixture of sukuks, equities and short-term instruments, funds in in line with the principles of Islamic finance and exchange-traded funds, real estate, gold and structured products.
