Over the next two years, wealth managers’ biggest challenges involve managing their clients’ investments and meeting return objectives with an acceptable level of volatility. They are also focused on improving the client experience.

At the same time, margin pressure, higher fixed costs and increasing regulatory requirements are prompting many wealth managers to look to outsourcing, insourcing or strategic alliances as potential solutions.

Mercer conducted its study in the first quarter among 125 participants in 26 countries across six regions.
