Industry Trends: Change is the name of the game! One of the
largest trends in wealth management this year is managing change. From
technology to industry reorganization, change is occurring rapidly. Technology
innovations have impacted the way clients participate in their wealth
management planning, which includes apps for mobile devices that put the ease
of making decisions at their fingertips. Mergers of some of the largest wealth
management firms are likely to have impacts on the structure of the market. This
may have implications for fee pricing for client services as well as competition
that remaining firms face. Either way, wealth management firms will need to
learn to adapt to an ever rapidly changing environment. For more on industry
trends, visit the Financial Planning site: http://www.financial-planning.com/gallery/fp/Top-10-Trends-in-Wealth-Management-in-2013-2682857-1.html
