Hi, it’s Edmund.
The wealth business in Asia is one of the fastest growing in the world.
One major reason why the wealth management segment in the region is doing so well is because of an increase in the number of high-networth individuals in Asia. According to Knight Frank’s latest edition of The Wealth Report, the ultra-rich population in Asia-Pacific is expected to rise the fastest over the next five years.
Asia Pacific, which currently accounts for around 42% of global wealth, is also seeing a great deal of wealth transfer from entrepreneurs to the next generation.
And this wave of Asian wealth has implications on the business of managing wealth, including the types of wealth management services that will emerge. For instance, generational wealth transfer will popularize new asset types and investment strategies as younger investors tend to favor new and innovative investment strategies.
Moving forward, more wealth will also be moved online, and more financial advisory will be carried out online, predicts digital wealth platform, Endowus. This won’t come as a surprise, given how regions such as Southeast Asia already have a preference for e-wallets and mobile payments.
Read what Gregory Van, co-founder and CEO of Endowus, has to say about the latest trends in the wealth management segment in Asia here.
