Accenture and PIMFA have recently teamed up to survey wealth management firms in eight European countries on current and emerging industry trends that we think our readers would find interesting. They report that:
- Respondents to their survey saw the future of wealth management as being shaped by industry consolidation, new technologies and a talent shortage.
- As a fourth theme, participants in the survey identified a need for more operational agility to be essential to capture the next wave of growth.
- Becoming agile would require among others address clients’ increasing focus on ESG, improve the client experience, and realize hybrid advice models.
