COVID-19: A Global Perspective on the Impact on Wealth Management

The pandemic and the abrupt shift to social distancing test wealth management firms’ digital engagement platforms.

Boston, July 15, 2020 – The COVID-19 crisis impacts wealth management on multiple levels, and many wealth management firms must adjust their client engagement model substantially in order to remain the trusted partner for their clients in these challenging times. Though the wealth management industry is in a better position today than at any other point in history to meet the challenges of this crisis, firms with weak balance sheets or those that have failed to embrace the latest technology will risk losing clients and maybe even go out of business.

This report reviews how wealth management firms around the globe have weathered this unique business challenge, whether their technology platforms have been able to live up to client expectations, and what course of action they are planning to take in the future. It compares the situation across three continents (North America, Europe, and Asia), and is based principally on responses to a quantitative survey conducted among 31 wealth management practitioners in April and May 2020.

This 23-page Impact Report contains 12 figures and one table. Clients of Aite Group’s Wealth Management service can download this report, the corresponding charts, and the Executive Impact Deck.
