Asian Wealth Management Forum 2017

Where: Fullerton Hotel, 1 Fullerton Square, Singapore 049178
When: May 11, 2017
Organiser: Hubbis
The event takes place against the backdrop of an environment where private banks and other wealth management firms are at a tipping point in their businesses. The challenges to the sector include: business models that are overly-reliant on transactional revenue; hurdles in raising competency and productivity; onerous compliance obligations; volatile and uncertain investment markets and limited real innovation or automation. With insurance companies among the various financial institutions making a foray into wealth management in Asia, the landscape is changing quickly. Individual firms need to focus on needs-based conversations with the right clients backed up by real advice and relevant contextual information. The digital revolution has infiltrated all aspects of the business and interactions with clients. Local onshore institutions need to seize the opportunity to position their wealth management offerings as more strategic within the wider group. The event is aimed at individuals and organisations serious about forging a future-proof model for their wealth management offerings.
