Nigel Green collects Business Person of the Year Award in New York

Accompanied by deVere USA’s senior Area Manager, Benjamin Alderson, and some of the senior wealth associates from the deVere New York hub office, deVere CEO Nigel Green, yesterday collected the Ops Business Person of the Year Award at the prestigious FTF News awards.

This annual event, which took place at the iconic Rainbow Room in Manhattan’s Rockefeller Plaza, is designed to recognise the work and achievements accomplished by finance professionals, service providers, regulators and industry experts throughout the year.

Commenting on the occasion, Mr Green said “I am delighted to receive this award on behalf of everyone at deVere. It's particularly prestigious as it’s voted for by the financial industry in the USA. We have received a number of awards in recent months which is a testament to the hard work of everyone at deVere. 

“I am particularly thrilled by this award for two reasons. First, the 10,000 votes in the independent voting process are cast by the very best industry professionals globally.  It’s always a real honour to be recognised and celebrated by your peers – especially in a sector as tough and competitive as ours.

Second, the award has been given because of our continuing campaign to have America’s Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) repealed.  This is a subject that I feel passionate about for many reasons, but primarily because FATCA negatively impacts the 7.6 million American expats around the world, many of whom are our clients.

Other reasons why I am fiercely opposed to this is that it could damage the American, and therefore world, economy; it infringes on individuals’ privacy; it will inevitably raise tax burdens for most Americans; and it is a harsh and unnecessary form of fiscal imperialism, to name just a few of its adverse unintended consequences”.
