Wealth in the UK: Competitive Dynamics Study, 2018 – St. James’s Place, Barclays and UBS are the Leading Players – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Wealth
in the UK: Competitive Dynamics 2018”
report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s
offering.

Wealth in the UK: Competitive Dynamics 2018
analyzes the UK wealth management market, with a focus on the top 20
competitors and the HNW investor segment. The report uses findings from
2018 Wealth Managers Survey and 2018 IFA Survey.

The UK’s leading wealth managers outperformed the total UK liquid asset
growth in 2017, with acquisitions being a common reason for this growth.

Robo-advisors remain the only notable new entrants to the UK wealth
management industry; however, the cut-throat robo-advisory market is
leading some players to expand into human-led services.

With MiFID II and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entering
into force along with substantial compliance costs, regulation remains a
top concern among UK financial advisors.

Select Findings

  • The market leaders in terms of assets under management (AUM) are St.
    James’s Place, Barclays, and UBS. The AUM of the top 20 UK wealth
    managers grew by 16% year-on-year between 2016 and 2017.
  • UK wealth manager activity is concentrated in London and South East
    England, with these two regions being home to 29.5% of total UK HNW
    liquid assets.
  • The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is working with the wealth
    industry to support innovation. It has highlighted a lack of
    transparency among some robo-advisors following the recognition of
    suitability failings.
  • M&A activity continues, with some competitors using it to grow AUM:
    Canaccord Genuity’s acquisition of Hargreaves Hale boosted the
    company’s AUM by 83.1%.
  • New digital investment platforms continue to enter the UK market, and
    demand for robo-advisory is leading more established wealth managers
    to invest and expand into this space.
