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%. The wealth management industry in Latin America is poised for growth at an estimated CAGR of XX.X% over the forecast period, from 2016 to 2021. The projected market value of the wealth management sector is USD XXXX.XX million, by 2021.
The growth in millionaire wealth has been immense after the economic crisis, and it has been driving the sector, globally. Moreover, high competition in the sector is another major driver. The wealth management industry in North America includes different types of wealth managers, in addition to private banks. Independent broker-dealers (IBD’s), wirehouses, independent advisors and MFO’s all compete to capture clients in the High Net Worth (HNW) and Ultra High Net Worth (UHNW) segments. The number of these HNW and UHNW people is on the rise, which acts as another driver.
Restraints and Challenges
Trust in wealth managers and financial markets has not been fully restored, which has caused changes in client behavior. An example of this is that of the clients increasingly making direct investments in real estate and private equity (not through wealth managers) and maintaining higher deposit levels. Some people fear that the situation in the coming years will be like the one in 2008 and are satisfied with keeping their money in banks rather than risking it elsewhere.
With EUR 18 trillion (data for 2014) of financial assets held by individuals, Europe represents one of the largest wealth management opportunities in the world. The margins in wealth management are good, and it helps private banks build more corporate connections. Hence, many banks are putting in more manpower into the wealth management division. Moreover, a large chunk of the millionaire population was born between 1945-1965 (baby boomer population), which is included in the mass affluent segment. This population would require financial advice for retirement planning in the coming decade, having accumulated significant wealth, which will present further opportunities for wealth management.
- 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 coming years.
- Though it may be late as compared to other consumer banking segments, wealth managers must offer digital alternatives for customer interactions and automate end-to-end processes.
