Wealth Management can mean differently to different groups of people.  For example, some view a car as a basic transport.  Some see it as a lifestyle.  Some see it as a fashion statement or vanity product.  Some see it as a dream.  Some see it as pollution.  Some may never have seen one before.

To a 10 years old kid with $50 in his or her piggy bank, savings and budgeting are likely his or her financial goals so that the savings in the piggy bank can grow.  And maybe then spend it all on a new toy.

To a 10 years old kid whose family has assets of $100 Million, learning about how economic trends and investments could affect the fortune & lifestyle of their family would be important.  Perhaps it would also be important to plan for a likely overseas education, getting the first bank account (with lots of money), waiting to get the first property or car, learning about credit cards and loans, how to make friends, and staying away from danger such as kidnaps and blackmails.

For most people, Wealth Management could be to achieve a certain lifestyle and spending in housing, transport, vacation, dining, shopping and hobbies.  It could also be planning for unfortunate events such as loss of income to the family or urgent cashflow needs for medical expenses, purchases, holidays or investment opportunities.


What are the common Wealth Management Solutions?

There are 4 key objectives in Wealth Management:

  1. Protect the Wealth
  2. Grow the Wealth
  3. Preserve the Wealth
  4. Transfer the Wealth

Different Wealth Management solutions achieve different objectives.  Majority of the population (mass market & affluent) would need solutions for Wealth Management, Investment Management and Risk Management.  Asset Management solutions would be relevant for High Net-worth and Ultra High Net-worth clients with complex & larger personal and business assets.  Read More: Should you build a Career in Mass Market, Affluent, High Net-worth or Ultra High Net-worth?

What are the Wealth Management Products?


Solutions are important, so are the products.  Without products, the solutions cannot be implemented.

All financial products are packaged or structured from underlying asset classes such as cash, bonds, equities, commodities, precious metals, real estate and alternative investments.  Financial instruments are then created such as in securities (stocks or bonds), Unit Trusts, Exchanged Traded Funds, Derivatives, Life and General Insurance Products.  They are then further developed into consumer and understandable products such a Global Balanced Unit Trust Fund (Equity & Bond) or Endowment (Life and Investments, where the investment returns are a co-sharing of profits of the insurance company).
