Private Wealth Management

Private Wealth Management

Despite political instability and the Brexit decision, the United Kingdom maintains its position as the world’s second-largest wealth management centre in terms of AMA (assets under management and administration).

The market is dominated by the private banking divisions of universal banks, as well as independent wealth managers and online stockbrokers offering execution, custody, and research services through online portals. The UK has the fourth-largest population of ultra-high-net-worth-individuals (UHNWIs), according to a report by Credit Suisse.

Wealth managers have a position of immense privilege. As trusted advisors, they help exceptional people navigate the complexities of today’s financial world. Wealth managers offer more than just investment advice but a holistic approach to enable high net worth individuals to manage their money and anticipate their own or their family’s needs. The demand for wealth managers continues to grow – by 2023, there are expected to be 7.7 million more high-net-worth-individuals (HNWIs) in the world, according to Wealth-X.

Worldwide, the wealth management industry continues to experience profound change –with both the increased pressure of compliance and instability in the global economy applying pressure to profit margins. Increasing regulatory burdens and the rising costs of risk are posing challengesto wealth managements firms. Meanwhile, advisors are retiring from the industry
faster than firms can replace them – meaning now, more than ever, private banks are looking for external talent to help achieve growth.
