When we rebranded to Skybound Wealth Management in January, it was about more than a new name and logo. It was about the changes implemented during 2020.
Award winning international financial planning advice from Skybound Wealth Management.
When we rebranded to Skybound Wealth Management in January, it was about more than a new name and logo. It was the culmination of the changes we implemented across the company during 2020, and our ambition to keep evolving in our relentless pursuit to become the advisor and employer of choice in the international financial planning industry.
So naturally we are delighted to receive seven awards across, three jurisdictions and in varying categories which recognise the efforts of every member of the Skybound family over the last two years.
Best Adviser Firm Europe
In the words of International Adviser, ‘Skybound is the new name for an established business with an impressive track record, impressive plans, extensive regulations a great strategy and all-round client focus.’
However, it’s the people and the shared ethos behind the new name which makes such an award possible. Our people are bound together by a common goal to help facilitate the investment objectives of every client.
From the Financial Advisers meeting face to face with their clients, to the Investment Committee constantly working to improve performance. The paraplanners and admin support teams working with providers around the world, to the data analysts whose findings help fine tune our operation. To the specialist partner firms that allow us to provide a market leading client proposition and everyone else in between, such an accolade is reward for a collective commitment to going above and beyond the norm.
And while being named Best Advisor Firm will take the headlines, the following six awards recognise the efforts that make such an achievement possible.
Excellence In Investment Planning - Europe

Our commitment to professional development goes beyond funding examinations. Skybound illuminate is an in-house development platform which provides all employees with access to a large number of modules covering regulatory, compliance, networking, soft skills, business essential and much more.
Excellence In Digital Innovation – Middle East And UK
Our aim is not only to remain at the forefront of international financial planning, but to lead its evolution. So, to be recognised for our excellence in digital innovation makes us incredibly proud too! Right through the company, we are constantly looking for new ways to enhance our overall proposition.
We stand on the brink of a technological revolution, accelerated by the COVID pandemic, that has fundamentally altered the way we live, work and communicate to one another. Incorporating these digital elements and aligning with our core service offering to clients, is key to being an industry leader.
Best Support Team - UK
Every decision we make comes back to the same point – what does this mean for the client. That’s why we place such importance on having the right people and systems in place to provide an integrated, seamless service that is tailored to the individual needs of each Skybound client.
We fully believe that the delivery of top client service does not just come from their Financial Advisor. Whilst our Advisors are our "race drivers", we have an entire technical and pit crew behind them ensuring they can deliver the best possible service to Skybound's clients.
Excellence In Business Strategy – Europe
Our vision is simple. To create a brand that instils pride in its employees, clients and business partners, enabling all involved to assist in building the most respectable financial planning company in the world.
After an initial period of consolidation, we have used the existing foundations of a long-established business as a springboard to overhaul our strategy and direction, creating a comprehensive plan which focuses on people retention and expansion of the firm.
As we approach the end of our first year as Skybound Wealth Management, these awards serve as a timely recognition of the efforts of everyone across the entire group to constantly challenge and improve every element of what we do as we all work towards becoming the advisor of choice for international investors.
