Following the global financial crisis, and the plethora of challenges it precipitated, more scrutiny than ever is being placed on the Wealth Management sector, with sensitivity to market shifts and drivers being more crucial than ever. WealthInsight’s latest report – Ultra HNWIs in the United Kingdom 2013 – provides information and analysis of the UK Wealth sector that is unparalleled both in terms of scope and depth, evaluating not only the way in which UK HNWIs (individuals with assets of or exceeding US$1 million, excluding their primary residence) have dealt with the fallout of the economic crisis, but also how the market is anticipated to move to 2017.

Hope on the Horizon

The multitude of economic challenges presented over the past five years have seen a general global decline in the number of HNWIs; however, the UK underperformed in comparison to the global average, with HNWI volumes reducing significantly more. Despite this disturbing trend, 2012 offered hope to the HNWI and Wealth Management sector in the UK, with a substantial rate of HNWI volume growth perhaps signalling a reversal in fortune for HNWIs in the UK. Indeed, WealthInsight’s research supports this conclusion, forecasting both HNWI volume and wealth to increase significantly to 2017.

Challenges Ahead

Although these predictions suggest a brighter for the UK’s HNWIs just over the horizon, success in the coming years will be dependent on Wealth Management organizations and Retail Banks circumventing or overcoming the challenges of the UK market:

- One of the biggest challenges faced by the UK is inflation, which has grown due to high energy and food prices.
- Another key challenge is the threat from other European economies such as Poland, which are becoming progressively more attractive to foreign investors.
- UK banks are still weak, and tight regulatory norms are likely to increase pressure.
- X.X% negative GDP growth in the fourth quarter of 2012 was a serious concern with regards to the economy
