The increasing number of wealthy individuals from diverse backgrounds means that traditional providers of services to high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs), from luxury goods companies to private banks, must adapt if they are to succeed. Today, the majority of HNWI wealth worldwide is self-made rather than inherited and private banks and wealth managers need to target a new type of client. Although inherited wealth is set to play a smaller role, the transfer of wealth from the ‘Baby Boomers’ to Generations X and Y is a crucial factor, with these generations set to become the beneficiary of the largest global wealth transfer in history. For banks looking to capture this sector, the challenge is to adapt their communication and marketing strategies to meet the needs of the younger generation rather than provide service offerings designed for their parents and grandparents.
