We’re delighted to announce WA Investor Services has been shortlisted for Specialist Adviser of the Year in Unquote’s 2017 British Private Equity Awards. The annual awards, hosted this year by sports pundit Chris Kamara, celebrate the contribution of private equity to the growth of British business.

The past year has seen unprecedented levels of political uncertainty, meaning growing numbers of investors are looking to WA Investor Services for in-depth and nuanced analysis of the political risks impacting their investment decisions. The triggering of Article 50, an unexpected election result and ongoing Brexit talks all mean that understanding political dynamics, and their potential impact on assets is more important than ever before.

WA has supported investment decisions across a range of policy areas over the past 12 months, providing informed analysis of macro-political trends, in-depth analysis of policy developments, and insight into the ongoing impact from a complex and fragmented local government policy and spending environment.

The WA Investor Services team supports investment activity in regulated or politically-sensitive markets by helping investors understand the impact of politics and policy making on an asset.

Voting is open now and closes on 14 September 2017. Click here to place your vote.

The awards ceremony, where the winners of the awards will be announced, will take place on 3 October 2017 at The Brewery, London, EC1Y 4SD.
