Private banks and wealth management firms changed their business model following the 2008 financial crisis. Rather than focusing on the size of their business, private banks and wealth management firms have become more focused on specific client segments that yield them the largest profits. Ultra-high net worth individuals (UHNWIs) represent less than 1% of the global HNWI population, but account for around 33% of global HNWI wealth. UHNWIs offer wealth managers large-scale profitability due to the potential size of their investments. By acquiring UHNWI clients, wealth managers are able to provide a significant boost to assets under management, and build long-term profitable relationships. When using wealth management services, UHNWIs often require a more sophisticated service than mass affluent or core millionaires. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important for wealth managers and private bankers to build trust and brand loyalty with UHNWI clients, and to understand their needs.
