The state of the private wealth banking industry is at an inflection point as the traditional customer engagement models with private banking clients has been transformed and new technologies and platforms are now augmenting the conventional human centred approach. Likewise, innovation in real-time visibility of multi-asset/multi-sector portfolios performance alongside scenario planning and market simulation has all contributed towards enriching the client-advisor relationship.

Key private banking players remain focused on value creation for their clients through embedded analytics enhancing client services extending from estate planning and next-gen services to capital preservation solutions. Moreover, with tight margins and demands for greater pricing transparency, private banking players having become more strategic in construction of their product portfolio, solution sets and advisory capabilities.

    The world’s preeminent Private Banks and Wealth Managers are demonstrating a committed drive in innovation, advisory, new products and services to meet the sophisticated needs of their clients.

    Amid economic activity revival on the back of the Covid-19 vaccine program, organisations moving from business continuity plans to stable working environments, together with the slightest improvement in unemployment numbers, forced the world to adjust to new realities. Coming to terms with the “new normal”, global investors are now on the look-out for attractive and stable investment opportunities.

    Needs of Private Wealth customers and families worldwide have drastically changed due to the pandemic and banks have had to accelerate efforts to deploy a multi-channel service strategy and safeguard clients’ businesses and wealth against negative impacts of economic uncertainly.

    The Global Private Banking Innovation Awards will recognise the world’s best private banks, wealth managers and asset managers that are championing innovation across advisory, service, products, customer experience and more.
