The Great British Entrepreneur Awards is delighted to announce UBS Global Wealth Management as the new sponsor of its Hall of Fame initiative.

UBS Global Wealth Management is the world's leading wealth manager, providing comprehensive advise, solutions and services to wealthy families and individuals around the world. Clients who work with UBS benefit from a fully integrated set of wealth management capabilities and expertise, including wealth planning, investment management, capital markets, banking, lending and institutional and corporate financial advice.

Central to the ethos of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards is being more than just 'an awards ceremony' - it's a sense of community, a thriving ecosystem of support all year round, providing opportunities for winners and finalists to connect and showcase their business.

Inspired by this ethos, it launched the Great British Entrepreneurs Hall of Fame in May 2019 to recognise individuals with a long-term record of combining their outstanding entrepreneurial achievements with a sustained commitment to support entrepreneurial talent. Fourteen members were inducted, including GoCompare founder Hayley Parsons OBE, Notonthehighstreet.com founder Holly Tucker MBE, TrustedReviews.com founder Hugh Chappell, and former Dragons' Den stars James Caan CBE and Jenny Campbell.

Francesca James, founder of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, said: "It's incredibly important that we recognise not only the fantastic entrepreneurs that enter the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, but also those that support them, champion the cause of entrepreneurship and devote their time to furthering business growth in the UK.

"That's what our Hall of Fame initiative does it's what YBS Wealth Management does. It is the ideal partner for the Great British Entrepreneurs Hall of Fame, and I look forward to working with the team to induct this year's members."

Mark Goddard, head of high net worth at UBS Wealth Management, said: "UBS has a proud history of working with UK entrepreneurs. We are always looking for ways to support and champion the British entrepreneurial community, which is why we are delighted to be the new sponsors of the Great British Entrepreneurs Hall of Fame.

"The Great British Entrepreneur Awards recognise those who have no only achieve outstanding entrepreneurial success but have gone on to support new and growing talent. UBS is proud to help showcase these individuals and be a part of the GBEA community."
