Skandia International, Fairbairn Private Bank and Axa PPP International scooped big prizes at this year's International Fund & Product awards.
The Best International Life Group award went to Skandia International, whilst Axa PPP International won Best International Private Healthcare Group and Fairbairn Private Bank scooped Best International Wealth Provider.
In a good night for Axa, Axa Wealth International won Best International Life Group (selling into the UK) in addition to Best International Product for the UK market with its Estate Planning bond.
Elsewhere, Standard Bank Offshore won Best Expatriate Bank whilst in the international pension sector Boal & Co triumphed with Best International Specialist Pension Provider for its international pension plan solutions.
The awards, which are in their 13th year, are judged by an independent panel of industry practitioners and experts.
"There is little doubt the past 12 months have possibly been the toughest year yet for the offshore industry," said chair of the judging panel Deborah Benn.
"Not only has the ongoing backdrop of difficult economic conditions taken its toll, but higher than normal regulatory pressures have been evident this year. Yet despite this, entries have displayed a refreshing determination to keep up high standards of service which has impressed the judges."
