02 June 2017
BDO, was crowned ‘Best Tax/ Accountancy Team – Southeast Asia’ at the 5th WealthBriefingAsia Awards on 1 June. The glittering awards dinner was held at the prestigious Westin Hotel.
One of 3 firms to be shortlisted in the ‘Best Tax/ Accountancy Team – Southeast Asia’ category, the triumph is yet another milestone in the Firm’s drive to be recognised as one of the pre-eminent players in the competitive tax space.
Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the awards were designed to recognise companies, teams and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2016’.
Commenting on the firm’s triumph, Mr Frankie Chia, Managing Partner, BDO said: "We are delighted to have been voted the winner of this prestigious award by so many of the industry’s great and good. It is a great honour to be recognised in these awards, and testament to the hard work that the team have put in over the last 12 months. Everyone has really pulled together to ensure we continue to deliver the highest level of service to our clients, and move us that bit closer to our goal of being recognised as the No. 1 firm in the tax space”.
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefingAsia, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to all the winners. He said: “The firms who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards were judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management.
