Wealth management is in for another challenging year, which is set to dampen profits and result in many disappointed clients. Looking at the market trends, there seem to be more challenges and threats than growth opportunities. Geopolitical tensions, inflation, and the Crypto Winter are all headwinds for the industry. Despite these crisis management issues, wealth managers are still looking to build up capabilities in ESG, expand in key growth markets, unlock the benefits of more personalization, and integrate artificial intelligence within more areas of their business.

This report considers the key trends and themes that will shape the wealth industry in 2023, including predictions regarding the course of the global wealth management market amid high inflation and geopolitical tensions.

Key Trends ESG, Recessionary Conditions, Cryptocurrencies, Russia/Ukraine Conflict, Inflation, Robo-Advice, and AI and Personalization

Top Wealth Management Trends

Some of the top wealth management trends in 2023 are ESG, recessionary conditions, cryptocurrencies, Russia/Ukraine Conflict, inflation, robo-advice, and AI and personalization.


Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) is an enduring concern for wealth managers as they are at the forefront of the West’s financial war in support of Ukraine. Digitalization and consolidation are long-time strategic concerns for wealth managers as well. HNW investors are keen ESG investors, and demand for ESG investment products now outstrips that for philanthropy. Hence, supporting HNW investors in their philanthropic endeavors will remain an important aspect of wealth managers’ repertoire, given that ESG investments and philanthropy support are two distinct propositions.

Russia/Ukraine Conflict

In a bid to cripple Russia’s economy, the West has disconnected key sanctioned Russian banks from the SWIFT global financial system and prevented the Russian central bank from deploying its international reserves. The assets of major Russian banks have been hit with asset freezes and new business restrictions. Russia can no longer conduct transactions through the US and EU systems. Furthermore,  G7 nations and the EU have revoked Russia’s most-favored nation status and denied borrowing privileges at leading multilateral financial institutions.


Uncertainty remains a key investment theme as wealth managers and investors are scrambling to inflation-proof portfolios. Higher inflation amid slower growth has brought an end to the availability of cheap money and inflated asset prices. Returns are harder to come by as central banks across the world are enacting tighter monetary policies.

AI and Personalization

In theory, robo-advisors are supposed to churn through large amounts of market data to generate portfolio recommendations that match a wide range of client goals and profiles. However, in practice, this approach is not common. AI-supported investment management aims to generate these hyper-personalized portfolio recommendations and monitoring for even small-scale investors, all at minimal incremental cost. Steps have been made to incorporate this approach into offerings. Direct indexing is one example, increasingly bringing personalized portfolios to investors with lower assets. For instance, launched in July 2022, Fidelity’s Solo FidFolios is one of the first retail-oriented direct-indexing services. It uses AI to support tax management of the portfolio and provide personalized investment strategies that use fractional share trading.

“The GlobalData platform is our go-to tool for intelligence services. GlobalData provides an easy way to access comprehensive intelligence data around multiple sectors, which essentially makes it a one-for-all intelligence platform, for tendering and approaching customers.

GlobalData is very customer orientated, with a high degree of personalised services, which benefits everyday use. The highly detailed project intelligence and forecast reports can be utilised across multiple departments and workflow scopes, from operational to strategic level, and often support strategic decisions. GlobalData Analytics and visualisation solutions has contributed positively when preparing management presentations and strategic papers.”

Business Intelligence & Marketing Manager, SAL Heavy Lift

“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered

“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.

Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
