Family business owners and first-generation entrepreneurs together form the largest HNW client segment in Taiwan. Wealth managers need to be prepared for clients with irregular incomes, heavy exposure to single industries, and finances entwined with their manufacturing business.
Equities holdings, currently a minor element in the local HNW portfolio, are forecast to be the top draw over the next two years. Providers need to be able to provide suitable funds as well as direct market access (the asset class is relatively evenly split between direct and fund holdings) to ensure they can capture this growing investor appetite.
Few wealth managers in Taiwan are leveraging social media, despite the clear appetite for use in the broader market. With Taiwans wealth managers relatively poor at leveraging referrals, social media will provide a much needed boost to this critical acquisition channel, with little competition for those relationship managers able to leverage it.
