  • Best Registered Investment Advisor for High Net Worth Clients 
  • Best New Product for High Net Worth Advisory

Now in their 8th year, the PAM Awards are a much sought-after industry accolade. Winners will be announced at a ceremony in February 2018. The Awards recognize top investment professionals, wealth advisors, legal firms, consultants and other key service providers operating within the private asset management industry. Annually, PAM invites firms to participate and an independent panel of industry experts, as well as the PAM editorial team, conducts the judging process. The process is based on a mixture of qualitative and quantitative performance indicators to select the winners of the 2018 awards. “Successful candidates must demonstrate: 1. Financial progress: candidates must be able to demonstrate a performance track record over the course of the last twelve months; 2. Growth: client numbers, internal hires and geographic expansion; 3. Client satisfaction: provide evidence of client satisfaction, including evidence of exceptional service and direct client statements; 4. Product innovation: details of new services and products launched over the course of 2016/2017.”

While shortlisted in certain categories for the last five years, Algonquin was recognized by PAM as the 2015 winner of the Best Private Wealth Manager – New Product category. “We are honored to be recognized in three categories.
