Private Wealth Management

Private Wealth Management

Demand for private wealth management business-critical talent is more than ever pushing to a high level in North Asia.

Hong Kong is the global leader for new net assets (NNA), with a gain of US$410bn since 2010. It is also third for competitiveness in Deloitte’s ranking of international wealth management centres. Meanwhile, China has witnessed the emergence of large third-party online wealth management platforms which combined assets under management have risen at a CAGR of 50% over the past five years. Furthermore, in the Asia Pacific, the asset and wealth management industry is forecasted to experience the fastest growth, globally. Assets under management (AUM) is expected to almost double in the region between US$15trn in 2017 to US$29.6trn in 2025, according to PwC.

The private wealth management industry continues to experience profound change. That includes the increased pressure of compliance and instability in the global economy applying pressure to profit margins. Increasing regulatory burdens and the rising costs of risk are posing challenges to wealth management firms. Meanwhile, advisers are retiring from the industry faster than firms can replace them. As a result, private banks are looking for external talent to help achieve growth. However, the shortage of private wealth management talent becomes one of the biggest challenges.
