The Private Banking Services industry, which provides wealth management services to high-net-worth clients, is expected to grow robustly in the five years to 2015. Although massive devaluations of client assets in the wake of the financial crisis encouraged low-risk investments and eroded revenue from asset- and performance-based fees, the industry has rebounded in recent years due to strong growth in the stock market. In the next five years, growth in the number of high-net-worth individuals will expand the industry's potential market, but also force firms to reorient their services. Although competition from other financial firms is expected to continue to intensify, the industry is projected to continue growing in the five years to 2020.
This industry comprises banking institutions that actively manage wealth for clients with investable assets exceeding $1.0 million. Private banks have the ability to make investment decisions and generate revenue through fees that are based on asset management, portfolio performance and specialty wealth-advisory services.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
