Research suggests that the private banking client of today and tomorrow expects greater personalisation in their advice and servicing, and in line with their goals. They expect to engage with their provider via traditional and digital channels, expect access to investments and asset classes that were previously only available to the most sophisticated investors. In this talk, we discuss how private banks are adapting to the ‘evolving’ client, how they are engaging the next-generation, and discuss how banks can defend their business from non-traditional competitors.
Chasing yield with low quality - have traditional FMPs served investors well? (Brought to you by Columbia Threadneedle Investments)
FMPs have become highly pervasive over the last 2-3 years. However, thanks to persistently declining interest rates, investors have been forced to go further down the quality spectrum to be able to achieve yield objectives. Especially with the virus driven recessionary context and its likely impact on credit markets and anticipated defaults. In this session, we’ll discuss how FMPs need to be designed with a fresh perspective, and how to enhance FMPs by leveraging proprietary Credit Research that focuses on quality and liquidity, coupled with a big data approach that ultimately constructs optimized portfolios that increase and narrow the variability of invested yields, whilst maintaining a high quality and risk mitigated portfolio.
