Asset/wealth management and premium retail banking industries are structurally changing with technology and digital transformation blurring the lines between the advisory services that can be offered to the ultra high-net-worth, high-net-worth and mass affluent. The adoption of digital technologies is driving down the cost of advisory services and enabling banks to deliver leading advisory to a broader number of clients, irrespective of their value as an investor.
Mass affluent and Premium retail banking clients are routinely requesting access to products that were traditionally only available to highly sophisticated or high-net-worth investors, including more personalized, 1:1 advisory services. This Banking Byte discussion will look at how digital, design, user experience and innovation strategies have removed the need for high-cost, in-person advisory. It will discuss how innovative technology can provide a cost-effective solution for delivering more personalized advisory services to investors at the lower end of the investment scale while retaining the first-class levels of services required by higher net worth investors.
As the convergence between the retail and corporate worlds continues to accelerate the discussion will also look at how the service expectation of investors is changing based on the digital experiences they have in their personal lives, through firms like Apple and Amazon.
