World Finance Counts Down the Best Wealth Management Providers 2014

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - Nov. 7, 2014) - Wealth management is an industry much changed from years passed. Once the preserve of the elite, today wealth management firms are casting a wider net and bringing on board a new breed of clientele, in answer to rising costs, digitisation, tighter regulation and an ever-changing investment climate. In the 2014 Wealth Management Awards, World Finance looks at the firms that have led the recovery in the sector and transformed it for the better.

"The clients of the future will be fundamentally different in terms of their needs and expectations," says Ian Smith, financial services strategy partner at KPMG in the UK. "They will demand more personalised information, education and advice that will require asset managers to radically address their technology capabilities to really understand their clients and support this level of service."

Wealth management providers must overhaul their methods and provide fitting financial solutions, underpinned by the latest technological advancements, if they are to satisfy an increasingly sophisticated client base and prevent them from seeking services elsewhere. The winners of this year's World Finance Wealth Management Awards, therefore, represent the most impressive names in the business, without which the industry would not be in the fit state it is in today.

Looking at what has been achieved across the wealth management industry in 2014, World Finance has carefully selected the companies that they believe to be the most important providers worldwide. Having successfully fulfilled a range of criteria, the firms that have been chosen set the benchmark to which all others should aspire.

For a look at the firms that have really transformed the wealth management industry, take a look at the new November-December issue of World Finance, available to read in print and online now.
