Report Highlights

Competitor activity in September 2012 remained subdued with a total of 52 developments, only slightly up on the August lull of 50 developments and still below the 12-month average of 64. Datamonitor anticipates that competitor activity will pick up in October and November, traditionally busy months ahead of the holidays in many parts of the world.

Staffing once again contributed the most to the September developments. Key developments included reports that Julius Baer would cut 660-880 jobs on completion of its acquisition of Bank of America Merrill Lynch's non-US business and the announcement that Coutts has appointed a new director of its onshore Swiss banking business.

Over the last six months, Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Barclays, and Morgan Stanley have been the three most active companies tracked by Datamonitor's Wealth Management Tracker Series. RBS also topped the charts for the March to August period; the majority of its activity being related to recruitment within Coutts and Adam & Company.
