2019 Winners

Congratulations to the winners of the Asian Private Banker Technology Awards 2019!


Q: Is there any cost of entry for the Technology Awards?
A: No. Fees are not required for entry or consideration.

Do you sign non-disclosure agreements?
A: Yes. We understand and respect participants’ confidentiality requirements and, as such, are prepared to sign NDAs upon request.

Q: Is an in-person pitch necessary to be considered for an award or is an electronic/physical submission sufficient?
A: Past experience has shown that in-person (or video conference) pitches that supplement entries are invaluable for all parties involved, as they provide an opportunity to discuss the finer points of a submission on a background basis. We highly encourage firms to take part in our Demo Day in Hong Kong on 9 January 2020, where in-person and video conference pitch sessions will take place to facilitate these conversations. Pitch time slots are limited and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Please contact [email protected] to reserve a slot.

Q: Can my institution pitch for multiple awards at the same time at the Demo Day?
A: Yes. While individual submissions are required for each category, participants may pitch for multiple awards during the Demo Day for the sake of convenience.

Q: Is a fact sheet necessary to accompany the submission?
A: Yes. The fact sheets are an absolute prerequisite for each awards submission as the details provided within them will help the Judging Panel better understand and evaluate your business and offering(s).

Q: Are deadline extensions possible if my institution requires extra time to make a submission?
A: No. Due to the overwhelming number of entries we receive each year, deadlines will be strictly observed. However, if we are unable to facilitate your request for a pitching session due to scheduling conflicts, please contact [email protected] at your earliest convenience to discuss alternative arrangements.

Q: When will the winners be announced?
A: Formal announcements will be made over the week of 24 February 2020. Winners will be notified ahead of time on an embargoed basis.
