London's weather problems did nothing to dampen spirits at The Tower of London for Fund Europe Awards presentation ceremony, a near full house turned out to applaud 2010's winners.
Despite the foul weather, nominees up for the Funds Europe Awards trekked from all over to attend the event. Paris, Luxembourg, Qatar; the turnout was truly multi-national.
Winners were all smiles as they walked up to the stage to collect their cut-glass crystal trophies. Alain Closier, CEO of Société Générale Securities Services was particularly delighted to win the European Asset Servicing Personality of the Year, having travelled in from Paris.
Other winners included Schroders for European Asset Management Company of the Year (>€20bn), Credit Suisse as European ETF Provider of the Year and RBC Dexia Investor Services for European Custodian of the Year.
In all, twenty-one winner trophies were presented, and five special commendations awarded. The big news of the evening: a clean sweep by France for the three top personality awards.
