Commonwealth Private marks fourth straight win at Australian Private Banking Awards

15 June 2012: Commonwealth Private was last night recognised as the “Outstanding Institution” in the $1 - $10 million category at the Australian Private Banking Awards, taking out the category for the fourth consecutive year.

Adrian Hondros, Executive General Manager of Commonwealth Private believes the award is a testament to the ongoing industry-leading expertise and innovation displayed by the Commonwealth Private team.

“We are very honoured to win this award for the fourth consecutive year; this segment represents the heartland for Australian Private Banking, and it’s a unique achievement for the Commonwealth Private team.  

This is solid proof of our team’s ongoing commitment to providing outstanding personalised service, and professional investment advice and exclusive opportunities to our clients and their families,” said Mr Hondros.

Hosted by the Australian Private Banking Council and RFi, the Awards recognise both institutions and individuals within Australian private banking, private wealth and private client services. The Outstanding Institution $1– 10 million category is determined via interviews with 1,000 selected high net worth clients, together with the assessment of a panel of esteemed judges.

In addition to taking top honours in the $1 – $10 million category, Commonwealth Private’s Rob Fasano was also recognised with the Outstanding Relationship Manager Award; Nik Velde was runner-up for the Outstanding New Wealth/Investment Adviser Award; Jeff Gibson was runner-up for the Outstanding Associate Award; and Rene Pyszko was runner-up for the Outstanding Analyst Award.

“While winning this award is great recognition, we remain focussed on our primary objective - to guide our clients in achieving their financial objectives, particularly in these uncertain times,” continued Mr Hondros.
