We are delighted to announce WA Investor Services has been shortlisted as the Specialist Adviser of the Year in Unquote’s 2018 British Private Equity Awards.

The shortlist was selected by a panel of experts from the industry, to showcase innovation, resilience and excellence within UK private equity.

The winner will be determined by a public vote, considered alongside the judging panel’s decision.

Political uncertainty has been growing across the globe. Internationally investors are grappling with the rise in populism, the prospect of a major trade war, and renewed regional conflicts.

In the UK divisions at the highest levels of government, ongoing Brexit talks, and a radical opposition all mean that understanding political dynamics, and their potential impact on assets, is more important than ever.

Investors look to WA Investor Services for in-depth and nuanced analysis of the political risks impacting their decisions. We help our clients understand risks, forecast and scenario plan, and provide ongoing intelligence gathering to track issues.

Our work over the past 12 months has ranged across a diverse span of topics from the macro to the technical. From the implications of a potential Corbyn government and the different scenarios for immigration and trade post-Brexit; to energy contracts for difference, recycling policy, and the funding envelope for social and foster care.

The awards ceremony, where the winners of the awards will be announced, will take place on 2 October 2018 at The Brewery, London, EC1Y 4SD
