Report Description

HNW Targeting and Retention Strategies


"HNW Targeting and Retention Strategies", report analyzes and sizes key segments of the global HNW market, and provides detailed recommendations how to best target and service these individuals. The report also provides a detailed discussion on the effectiveness of different HNW client retention strategies. It is based on our proprietary Global Wealth Managers Survey.

48% of HNW individuals are professionals, making them the largest target market, closely followed by entrepreneurs at 46%. While considerably smaller in size, providers will also find HNW expats an attractive segment thanks to their more complex affairs resulting in a greater need for wealth management services. Despite the above segments differing service requirements, we see very little difference when it comes to providers targeting strategies. While client referrals are the most successful means of acquisition, wealth managers should adopt a more differentiated approach. Providers targeting professionals will find external referrals an effective channel, while investment banking referrals will prove fruitful in the entrepreneur space.
