Wealth management is an increasingly global industry, with international and regional client service needs and regulatory demands. While client expectations vary by geography, the field is most closely associated with traditional advisory and discretionary wealth management in Europe, brokerage in the United States, and a certain trading orientation in Asia. Across all regions, tax optimization has become less of a driver as focus has shifted to the quality of service and advice, as well as the ever-present performance factor.
Egon Zehnder’s privileged position as a global wealth management leader affords us the perspective to partner on solutions that make sense for our clients’ current operations as well as position them for future aspirations. Our consultants, all hired from industry, are part of the local fabric in 36 countries spanning 64 offices, giving them the ability to differentiate among local, regional, and global issues and to respond accordingly. For example, we can address the increasing role of regulation over the past 10 to 15 years, and the greater challenge talent often faces in migrating from the retail to the private banking sector.
Our deep industry expertise and decades-long relationships extend across all roles of the Wealth Management value chain — from Chief Investment Officers and Portfolio Managers through operations/and back-office functions like IT, Risk, Legal, and Human Resources and, of course, market/front-office leaders and CEOs. Our unique collaborative model ensures frictionless access to our global resources. We welcome the opportunity to help you experience true partnership.
