The results of the 2017 eprivateclient Top 35 Under 35 - the definitive annual list of young private client practitioners - are unveiled today. Congratulations to the 70 individuals, 35 men and 35 women, who have made it onto the list.
The Top 35 Under 35 is designed to identify, recognise, introduce and promote the rising stars of the private client professions. It also provides an opportunity for the top 35 men and 35 women to meet each other throughout the next 12 months through smaller events.
The process began with an open call for nominations from the UK and the Crown Dependencies for young and upcoming stars within the private client advisory professions, be they lawyers, accountants, trustees or any other professional intermediary.
As with previous years, both the quality and quantity of nominations were high, with a record number of over 470 for 2017 from over 70 firms across the UK and the UK Crown Dependencies.
Across the nominations, 54 percent were women and 46 percent men. Across the sector, ten percent were from the trust industry, 7.5 percent family lawyers, 51 percent were private client lawyers, 21 percent accountants/tax advisers, two percent property buyers, four percent were offshore lawyers, three percent were property lawyers and one family office employee was also nominated.
Once the nomination period had closed in mid August, the nominations are collated and a rigorous judging process takes place during which each nominee was judged on the strength of their nomination(s).
Other factors considered during the judging process - undertaken by senior members of PAM Insight's editorial and commercial teams - include who made the nomination, an individual’s achievements over the past 12 months and number of nominations they received.
Career progression, the quality and extensiveness of nominations and the seniority of who made the nomination and what that person said are crucial elements in determining who makes the list.
For 2017, a number of new names appear as well as some previous Top 35 Under 35s who have justified a return to the list.
A champagne reception will be held for the 35 men and 35 women who are named on the list today in London on Tuesday 26 September 2017.
The 2017 eprivateclient Top 35 Under 35 initiative and champagne reception are once again kindly supported by Cazenove Capital.
