We are delighted to announce that BlackRock has won the coveted Gold Standard Award for the sixth year in succession. Now in their tenth year, the awards are dedicated to identifying firms in the financial services sector that demonstrate a strong structure and are committed to excellent standards of service in all areas critical to financial consumers:
value for money
treating customers fairly
competence to conduct business
the ability to generate trust among intermediaries and consumers
The awards are also designed to identify companies that go above and beyond standard business practices to restore faith in the financial services sector generally. As a multiple winner of a Gold Standard Awards, BlackRock has demonstrated all of these attributes and has consistently proven that when it comes to customer service we are at the very forefront of our industry.
The values extolled by the Gold Standard Awards are the very same values that we have strived to build our business upon over our 24-year history. We are therefore delighted to have had these recognised by industry leaders. BlackRock focuses on what really matters - servicing our clients and striving to deliver investment performance.
How we won
To win this award six years in a row is an incredible achievement. Those competing have to fill in an extensive questionnaire on which they are judged to see if they are worthy winners of a Gold Standard. The responses are scrutinised at length by a panel of 16 industry experts who are looking for the very best each firm has to offer.
