Financial Planning & Advice in California
The Financial Planning and Advice industry in California is comprised of advisers and planners that provide wealth management and other financial services, such as portfolio management, protection planning and brokerage services, for their clients. Over the five years to 2017, the industry in California has been growing. Over the past five years, assets under management in California has grown in line with a rise in per capita disposable income and the value of equities markets. As per capita disposable income has grown, California residents have had more financial resources available to invest, thus prompting clients to work with industry operators. These trends are expected to persist over the five years to 2022. The number of affluent households in California is expected to continue climbing in line with the rising value of the S&P 500. Moreover, the state population is projected to continue aging, while investor uncertainty is forecast to increase. However, strengthening external competition will slow revenue growth to some extent.
