“Quality of information provided is excellent and offers a master class in the level of expertise and understanding required to successfully deliver products and services on a global scale. In particular, judges felt that Skandia International’s targeting of individual markets using various brands is more advanced than other players... As leaders in open architecture investment, product education and training was outstanding and a key feature throughout. Technical excellence is at a standard that other players aim for and aspire to. Excellent.”
