Technology will inevitably play a defining role in determining winners and losers

It gives us great honour to bring to you, this maiden issue of Global Private Banker – a publication dedicated to the worldwide Private Wealth, UHNW, Technology and Luxury communities.

This issue delves into 2020 ESG trends- the forces and macro drivers shaping ESG investing and what to expect throughout the next 12 months.

We look at investment themes and ideas as well as the increasing pressure on Private Banks and Family Offices to implement nascent technology to cater to the increasingly sophisticated needs of a changing clientele.

We also commemorate the winners of the annual Global Private Banking Innovation Awards 2019, whose efforts in driving innovation and superior performance across traditional and non-traditional private banking products are setting industry benchmarks.

Technology will inevitably play a defining role in determining winners and losers – given the momentous transfer of wealth which is anticipated to take place over the next five years.

The private banking landscape has experienced a regulatory avalanche over the last few years. Numerous new restrictions have been implemented, ranging from the marketing of products and services, to customer protection, distance selling, and financial advice.

Further, the rapidly-changing fiscal environment continues to redesign the cross-border wealth management and private banking market. This evidently translates into further costs and investments for the players, creating new challenges. Conversely, the pace of technology and innovation is shaping opportunities that were previously unattainable.

Wealth management continues to remain one of the best-performing businesses for banks globally. Spurred by pre-COVID19 positive macroeconomic trends, robust stock market activity, persistent movement toward fee-based vs. transaction-based relationships, and favourable demographic shifts – wealth management businesses have achieved impressive top- and bottom-line performance.

We look forward to announcing the winners of the 2nd annual Global Private Banking Innovation Awards 2020 and to seeing some of you at our upcoming industry events.
