New Financial Services research report from Timetric is now available from Fast Market Research
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/20/2013 -- Wealth management is one of the most promising segments of the global financial services sector due to the emerging markets in Asia and Latin America. However, downside risks have intensified due to financial crises, volatility in capital markets, the movement of capital to relatively safe assets and regions, and increased regulatory pressures and norms. Competitors specialize in various business models in order to cater to the diverse needs of high net worth individual (HNWI) clients. The segment's participants differ in terms of size, corporate structure and clients. Such levels of diversification indicate that the wealth management segment can sustain a variety of profitable business models. Wealth management business models differ in terms of firms, size, corporate structure, clients targeted and revenue generated. Many firms and organizations share common features in terms of their core activities, company history, operations and services, providing a basis for rudimentary or arbitrary business model classifications. It is possible to identify basic wealth management models based around banks or other custodial institutions; broker-dealers and stockbrokers; and investment managers and family offices. These models are not mutually exclusive. One by-product of financial integration means that wealth management firms with a banking background, often have both broking and investment management arms. Similarly, many broking firms have diversified into investment management and other activities to generate more reliable and higher-quality revenue streams.
