Aspiriant Wins Best Private Wealth Manager Award from Private Asset Management

Private Asset Management (PAM), an independent panel of leading industry professionals from across the world, awarded Aspiriant with its 2023 Best Private Wealth Manager over $5bn – client service award. This prestigious award recognizes client service excellence among wealth managers, delivered through a consistent and proven commitment to client planning and lifestyle objectives and positive client outcomes. Winning such an honor in private wealth management is meaningful –its industry peers recognizing one another as the best of the best.

Aspiriant’s 2023 award submission for Best Private Wealth Manager was part of a lengthy rigorous scoring process focused on several differentiators which make us stand out from competitors.

  • Aspiriant’s independent employee ownership model allows us to align the interests of our clients and employees, in addition to serving clients for generations with seamless transitions.
  • Merging with two firms in 2022, we bolstered our resources for clients, expanded our dedicated in-house tax services team and created several new partners of the firm. This part of our strategy aligns with our business and ownership model.
  • We enhanced our tech-forward client experience with multiple software improvement programs that transformed and modernized the way we serve clients.
  • We strengthened our Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging initiative by expanding our executive leadership team from 14% to 57% women, hiring a Chief People Officer and rolling out a scholarship program to support finance students.

Rob Francais, CEO and partner at Aspiriant said, “This award is a testament to our extreme focus on the client experience. As the firm continues to grow organically and through partnerships, we are dedicated to strengthening our 100% employee ownership model which aligns interests between our clients and employees.”

This wasn’t the firms first time Aspiriant received such an honor. In 2022, Aspiriant won PAM’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiative of the Year award.
