No. 3 Bank of Singapore Sees Asia Rich Shift to Paying Fees for Advice

Bank of Singapore sees the region’s private-banking industry shifting towards a fee- based model. Wealth managers in Asia have traditionally earned the bulk of their client income from commissions, in contrast to the situation in Europe where fee-based advice is more common
