The Awards are open to all tech vendors that provide solutions for private banks, institutions with private banking facilities and wealth managers in Asia. Vendors are awarded for their foresight and execution.
The Technology Awards are judged by members of Asian Private Banker’s editorial team and chaired by editor Sebastian Enberg.
The Panel comprises the most experienced and connected bureau of journalists covering private banking and wealth management in the APAC region.
The Panel will invite guest judge(s) for the following categories: Best Integration Advisor, Tech Consultant of the Year, Most Promising Tech Startup, Most Innovative Solution, and Tech Changemaker of the Year.
Submissions are now closed for the Technology Awards 2020. Details and guidelines for the next edition of the Technology Awards will be available in 2021.
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 28 to 29 January 2021, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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@example.com 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 8 February 2021. Winners will be notified ahead of time on an embargoed basis.
