With all of the threats – be they regulatory, economic, or financial – that can potentially impact upon other banking activities, many of the leading banking groups around the world prioritized growth in the wealth management market as a key part of their overall strategies in the lead up to 2010 and beyond.
With the credit crisis and global recession having a hugely negative effect on the financial services market in 2009, announcements concerning M&A, partnership agreements, and organic growth tapered off. The higher pace of such developments in 2010 means that wealth managers have shifted competitive strategies back to a more normal footing.
In order to combat commoditization, private banks and wealth managers of all types will engage in greater customer segmentation, setting up specialized teams and services designed to appeal to certain ethnic, geographic, national, professional, and social groups.
