The future of wealth management
Wealth management is no longer just for high- and ultra-high net-worth individuals. There’s increasing demand for advisory services for mid-earners who are experimenting with investment. In response, many firms are introducing robo-advice, intelligent assistants and other self-service tools for financial education.
Wealth management has always relied on advisors leading clients, using their domain knowledge to choose the best investments and plan ahead. But increasingly, clients are looking for ways to manage their own wealth with a centralized view of their whole financial position.
Delivering personalized services at scale as some of the industry shifts to self-service will be challenging. Where historically advisors would tailor their recommendations to the client, firms now need to embrace artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide a personal touch when it comes to digital interactions.
