Finance Monthly has announced the 2016 winners for the best firms in public relations, accounting, legal, compliance, consulting and banking.
This year, there are some big corporate names – like Deloitte, KPMG, UBS Wealth Management and China Bank, and some smaller firms you may not recognize, like Macias PR – a New York-based public relations firm that was named the top “Financial PR Firm – USA.” Last year, Macias PR was selected as the “PR Consultant Firm of the Year – USA.” It was the only public relations firm honored in the USA.
Other winners include KPMG for Taxation Firm of the Year, UBS Wealth Management for Investment Firm of the Year, Deloitte for Business Outsourcing Firm of the Year and China Bank for Banking and Finance Firm of the Year.
“Finance Monthly’s research department has spent the past several months carefully researching and identifying some of the most respected individuals and firms from all over the world,” said Editor-in-Chief Mark Palmer. “All of our M&A Awards winners show an insight into the market that proves why the demand for expert dealmakers continues to increase year upon year.”
Researchers with Finance Monthly applied a 10-point criterion in selecting the best firms in legal, accounting, public relations, consulting and asset management across Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America and the Middle East.
In the public relations category, researchers quantified the PR firm’s media deliverables and expertise by measuring media placements with top tier publications. In 2016, Macias PR secured stories for its clients with The Financial Times, Barron’s Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Fox Business, Bloomberg News, The Street, Reuters, US News & World Report, The American Banker, Kiplinger’s Magazine, MSN Money, Wall Street Lawyer and others.
