Wealth managers are fairly heterogeneous, with different business models, target groups, product suites, and service capabilities to offer; as a result their use of the mobile channel will also be varied and diverse. However, regardless of the type of wealth manager, the mobile app or site must fulfil a need.
According to Verdict Financial's 2012 Financial Services Consumer Insight (FSCI) Survey, 33% of affluent mobile banking users cited the app being too slow and 10% cited bugs in the software as reasons for ditching a mobile banking app. A poorly laid out app that is rejected by users risks frustrating future use of the mobile channel.
