This report benchmarks the world's leading wealth managers by managed client assets and financial performance. It covers the 49 most prominent institutions, including standalone private banks and wealth managers, as well as competitors that are part of larger universal financial groups. All international public wealth managers with over $100 billion in private client AUM are featured in the report.

After 2021 saw double-digit growth in client assets and record profits, the private wealth management industry looks set for its toughest year since the global financial crisis. A combination of expansionary monetary policy and pandemic support created fertile market conditions for private wealth managers in 2021, but 2022 is set to be the polar opposite - saddling competitors with significant challenges and headwinds.


  • Inflows to the largest wealth managers outpaced growth in overall HNW wealth in 2021.
  • Digitalization of private wealth management is continuing to reduce headcount at leading banks, even as assets under management and clients reach all-time highs.
  • COVID-19 has already faded from the strategies of the top wealth managers, with geopolitics and environmental, social, and governance rising as concerns.
