Women Taking Over Wealth Management ?
Wealth management since its beginning has efficiently evolved over the years, and this is all thanks to peoples’ business prosperity. Wealth management therefore follows its clients and their successes because the job of one wealth manager is to protect the clients’ wealth and organize tax and other types of planning for future savings of the same client.
Many wealth managers deal with all kinds of challenges on their jobs, this is why it is expected from them to be firm and calm in many situations as possible. There will be times when the client’s financial status is hit negatively, and wealth managers will have to advise them on what should be done in that situation. This is why being the wealth manager means being a professional; only a professional can help you out in these types of situations.
They are also people you can trust, because they work with the bank, although there are many private wealth management firms and consultants. No one says that trusting a private wealth manager is bad, but there are certain risks if those private firms are not checked with banks. They always need to be connected because you can’t trust someone who has no affiliation with the bank. Wealth manager needs to take your money seriously, not in any way steal from you.
Men were (in the not-so-distant past) were the ones responsible for the wealth in their families. This was in most cases true; they would come to that certain amount of money by working hard, involving themselves in various types of businesses and the women were the ones who were taking care of the home and kids. Over the recent years, this is not the case. More and more women are those who make more money because of their ambition and drive to succeed in a ‘man’s world’. It is said that women control half the wealth in the US.
What about other countries?
Financial success has become more important to women, this is why many wealth managers get more women as their clientele, which is not bad, only unusual because this sort of thing didn’t happen in the past. By 2020 it is estimated that women will be in control of two-thirds of the worlds wealth! Many women are facing success in wealth over men because they tend to inherit the large amounts of money either from their parents or their partners.
Women also have longer longevity of life and this results in longer retirements. Because of their analytical thinking, women are not prone to spending money on unesecary things like men do; they are better savers of money than men. Although this is not always the case. Wealth manager because of this advises woman differently then advising a man. When there is a married couple, wealth manager advises them differently as well. This shows how one wealth manager needs to be flexible in the terms of their client’s needs, always be willing to fulfill whatever is asked out of them.
