A panel of independent judges made up of top names in the industry and led by WealthManagement.com Editor-in-Chief David Armstrong determined the 2021 Wealthmanagement.com Industry Award winners. The best in each category were selected based on quantitative measures of their initiatives--such as scope, scale, adoption and feature set--along with qualitative measures, such as innovation, creativity and new methods of delivery. The awards expanded in 2021 to recognize product and service providers who are pioneering innovation in new and emerging technologies, as well as progressive companies that are advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in the financial services industry.
