European Wealth Management Market Analysis

The Europe Wealth Management Market size in terms of assets under management value is expected to grow from USD 43.02 trillion in 2024 to USD 53.37 trillion by 2029, at a CAGR of 4.41% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the European economy. As a result of the pandemic, investments, transactions, and other financial services were affected. The sudden spread of the COVID-19 crisis has harmed Europe. European countries took stringent measures to combat the viral infection and limited its human-to-human spread, including the closure of numerous commercial and industrial operations. As a result, wealth management companies have been moderately impacted.

With more than EUR 20 trillion (around USD 21 trillion) of financial assets held by individuals, Europe represents one of the largest wealth management opportunities in the world. In some countries, the margins in wealth management are among the highest, and it helps private banks build stronger corporate connections. Many banks are investing more manpower and technologically advanced platforms into their wealth management operations.

There is a growing level of trust in wealth managers and financial markets, driven by the London Stock Exchange and some German and French wealth management companies. These companies are developing digitized products that have changed client behavior. The global economic crisis of 2008 significantly decreased client trust in wealth management firms globally. This resulted in a shift towards safer products such as fixed-income securities and other personalized services. However, the mass affluent offer high growth opportunities for the wealth management industry. AUM (assets under management) grew by 5%, primarily driven by equity market performance, with modest net inflows of 2%.

Moreover, a large chunk of the millionaire population is the baby boomer population, which is included in the mass affluent segment. With accumulated significant wealth, this population in the coming decade will require financial advice for retirement planning, which will present further opportunities for wealth management. The most important factors for the European wealth management market are Britain's Exit from the European Union and the Digitized Platform served by wealth management companies. It means Britain's Exit from the European Union has brought about a change in the market and its positive and negative effects will be seen in the coming years. Although digital alternatives to traditional consumer banking segments are late, wealth managers must automate end-to-end processes, a process that the United Kingdom is leading across the world.
