Wealth Management

Private Banking & Wealth Management - Part 8


This eCourse consists of two modules. Module 1 focuses on Ultra-high net worth individuals (ultra-HNWIs or UHNWIs) - a group while relatively small in number, account for a very significant portion of overall HNWI wealth. UHNW clients have needs and expectations that differ from those of mass affluent and lower high net worth investors. The module examines in detail the characteristics of the ultra-HNW segment of the private wealth business and the key considerations for wealth managers when it comes to managing such clients.

Module 2 examines the family office model in detail and the specific challenges associated the managing the vast wealth of UHNW families. Wealth management for high net worth (HNW) families has grown increasingly complex. While the concept of a family office has existed for centuries, the family office landscape is undergoing significant changes as a new population of ultra-UHNWIs emerges and wealthy families seek contemporary, more agile ways of managing and preserving their assets and wealth.


On completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Recognise the key characteristics of UHNW clients and their families
