Seizing the Global HNW Pension Opportunity

Seizing the Global HNW Pension Opportunity



Summary



5.2 million HNW investors are of retirement age and 3.9 million HNW individuals will gain access to their pension assets within the next 10 years, freeing up a significant amount of wealth locked up in pension products. Being able to provide pre-retirement advice as well as advice on transition strategies will be critical, given increased churn rates when investors retire. However, only 65% of providers in the HNW space offer pension and retirement planning advice, predominately via partnerships.



On the flipside, 64% of wealth managers report strong HNW demand for pension planning globally. Yet demand varies considerably on a country-by-country basis due to various factors, such as the sophistication of the local pension system, cultural factors, trust in the government, the role of employers, and the makeup of the local HNW market.
