In an uncertain economic and political environment banks are no longer prioritizing rapid expansion strategies to achieve growth. Banks are divesting and exiting non-core markets, with some targeting emerging markets with increasing HNWI populations. The main objective for providers is to focus on domestic markets, remain profitable and achieve sustainable steady growth in their core markets.

On the same time tightening regulations and a weak macroeconomic environment have impacted the profitability of wealth management firms, encouraging them to re-examine their strategies. To maximize returns, wealth management firms are now focused on reviving their firms' brand values, and product and service offerings.

Both Banks and Wealth Management firms are approaching HNWIs with a wide variety of products and services to capture a greater share of the market. In the post-financial crisis environment they have also been observed to be building lending solutions to cater to the strong HNWI demand for credit and access to liquidity.

Furthermore, fearing the disruption that alternative digital platforms can bring, the automated advice space has been entered by traditional financial service providers. By including a digital advice option, providers can appeal to a broader range of clients and meet investors' needs through their lifetimes.

With wealthy clients, and especially UHNWIs, behaving like institutional clients, banks are using cross-selling opportunities between investment and private banking, and it has become common for private banking divisions to be positioned with investment banking and asset management. As regulatory requirements pose ever greater challenges, private bankers and wealth managers are likely to experience further changes to their business models, products and services.

The key findings that emerged from GlobalData's study on HNWI Asset Allocations; are presented below:

  • The global HNWI population was estimated at nearly 15 million in 2015, with a total wealth of US$60 trillion.
  • HNWI wealth is projected to grow by CAGR6.7% over 2016-2020 to reach US$82.1 trillion by 2020.
  • In the post-financial-crisis environment, private banks and wealth managers are building lending solutions to meet strong HNWI demand for credit and access to liquidity.
  • Wealth managers are focused on providing higher customization by targeting specific client segments such as females, entrepreneurs and young HNWIs.
  • Increased focus is being observed on relationship-based pricing to encourage brand loyalty.
  • Wealth management firms are utilizing synergies by leveraging cross-selling opportunities between retail, private and investment banking.
