Wealth management is broken.
According to the Ernst & Young 2019 Global Wealth Management Report:
- One-third of clients plan to switch wealth management providers within the next three years, with the youngest and wealthiest being the most likely to switch.
- 80% of the clients stated that they wanted more personal planning and advice…yet half remained on the sidelines.
- 50% of clients said they were dissatisfied with the fees and didn’t feel like they were being charged fairly.
On top of all of that, in the last 6 months, the entire industry has changed—and it is not returning to the way it used to be. Seminars are all canceled. Meeting people face to face in your office is over. Networking and business events, gone. The need for brick and mortar offices, transformed. Yet client acquisition and servicing remain the biggest challenges advisors and firms are facing today.
To win the future, advisors and firms must find solutions to these 3 significant challenges:
A disconnected client experience and advisor technology that lags way behind modern FinTech.
An outdated business model that is focused on charging asset management fees and then giving away the one thing clients want more of and are willing to pay for: personalized advice and financial planning.
Lack of a scalable and predictable client acquisition system that targets and wins ideal prospects month after month
Clients are looking to capture more value from their advisory relationships. They are demanding seamless and intuitive digital platforms that deliver more personalized advice and planning. Traditional models are failing to deliver it.
It is time to build a smarter advisory practice and deliver to your clients the future of advice — today.
One-third of clients have switched providers or moved assets in the past three years and another third plan to do so in the next three years.
Research says more than 80% of wealth management clients express interest in financial advice and planning, yet half of these remain on the sidelines.
45% of clients do not trust their wealth manager or advisor to charge them fairly.
