How should wealth managers be preparing for the upcoming intergenerational wealth transfer?

May 15, 2017

We are amidst the greatest intergenerational wealth transfer ever known and wealth managers need to take note if they want to retain assets. More than £400 billion in wealth from Britain’s Bank of Grandparents is expected to be passed through to the younger generations in the coming years - navigating this transition will be critical.

Why wealth managers should care about increasing client demand for private asset investing

February 3, 2017

Our last two articles in this series have very much focused on why high net worth and ultra high net worth individuals have been increasing their exposure to private assets and why they are increasingly doing so directly rather than through funds. Direct private assets have never, however, been much of a consideration to wealth managers advising these individuals so in this piece we want to delve more in to why wealth managers should care.

What lies ahead for wealth management in 2017

January 16, 2017

Wealth management as an industry is in a phase of transformation. The need for digital services becomes more and more evident due to changing client demands, expectations and the subsequent evolutions within financial technology. Wealth managers are having to adapt to these changes and this is resulting in a number of trends arising that are likely to become increasingly strategically important for firms as we move forward into 2017.

Beyond the financials - What is driving demand for private assets?

The increasing demand for private assets and why wealth managers should care

October 3, 2016

Private assets (debt, equity and real estate) have long held a role in institutional portfolios, as they are comfortable trading illiquidity for returns. In addition, individuals are now allocating greater sums here too and this has traditionally been chalked down to the current low return environment. Whilst financials are a factor, this article explores the personal, emotional and intellectual drivers which are encouraging the shift to direct private asset investments across all wealth segments.
