Welcome to the Spear’s ranking of the best wealth managers for high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals in Singapore. The list features our Top Ten, Top Recommended and Recommended advisers.
Asia Pacific is projected to usurp North America as the wealthiest region in the world within five years — APAC’s mass affluent hold $47.3 trillion, and the region leads the world in terms of the growth of HNWs and UHNWs. Its middle class is forecast to double in size by 2030, with many families set to enjoy higher incomes and greater wealth (according to HSBC).
With its open access to global markets, the expertise of its institutions, and a stable and progressive legal and regulatory framework, Singapore is well-positioned to capitalise on the rapid growth of Asian wealth. Wealth management firms and private banks in the city state are set to increase their AuM in the coming years.
As the wealth and number of high-net-worth (HNW) Asian investors increases, their needs are likely to become increasingly complex, so access to high-quality advice is crucial. A good wealth manager can help to organise one’s financial affairs and maximise the efficiency of investments.
Spear’s publishes annual rankings of the top private client advisers and service providers to HNWs and UHNWs. These are drawn up on the basis of peer nominations, client feedback, telephone and face-to-face interviews, data supplied by firms, as well as information gathered by the Spear’s editorial and research teams.
