Professional Wealth Managementt

Home / Info / About Us

Published by the Financial Times, Professional Wealth Management (PWM) specialises in analysing the growth strategies of private banks and the regional financial centres in which they operate. 

The wealth management and funds industries are changing fast in core European, Asiana and American markets. Driven by an incoming local and global regulatory tide, commercial imperatives and client demand, private banks and investment houses must redraw their business models to comply with the new reality. In an industry driven by regulation, technology and economic disruption, PWM provides strategic advice and information to key decision-makers. 

PWM carries the latest analysis of private banks, wealth managers and regional financial centres, along with in-depth reporting on asset allocation, the fast moving regulatory agenda, digital operations and technology, with input from a broad range of thought leaders. 

PWM is devoted to analysing the delivery of wealth solutions to private clients and entrepreneurial families. This can be through traditional banks, private investment or family offices and increasingly robo-advisers. PWM is also helping financial institutions to set up relevant distribution and advice models in developing markets such as the Middle East and parts of Asia and Latin America. 

Across print, digital and event channels, PWM provides strategic advice to key decision-makers working in all stages of the distribution process.
