Key Topics

  • Has the IAM sector progressed as rapidly or as comprehensively as market participants expected?
  • Are the IAMs as independent as they profess to be? 
  • Are they transparent in their approach to clients, fees and retrocessions? 
  • Are the IAMs truly offering objective advice and/or outperformance potential to their investor clients? 
  • Can the IAMs attract the requisite quality of talent with the necessary expertise and experience from banks or other firms, and thereby grow their platforms apace?
  • Can clients of the independent firms transfer their clients’ private bank custodian relationships to the new ranks of digital platforms?
  • Are the independents focusing sufficiently on the ageing generations in Asia and wealth transition, and therefore on the next generations who will hold the bulk of Asia’s private wealth?
  • How do the IAMs balance their boutique origins and values with the need to achieve scale?
  • Can the independents communicate their core values and proposition effectively, and how can they individually and collectively improve their image and their marketing?
