Over the last year, the wealth management industry has faced extraordinary market conditions and macro-economic challenges, causing many firms to reconsider their operational strategies. New technology options and investment opportunities are all disrupting the status quo, so it’s critical to pay attention to the subtle yet dramatic changes happening in the independent wealth space that will shape the industry going forward.
In this episode, Shannon Rosic, director of WealthStack content and solutions, speaks with Tim Welsh, president of Nexus Strategy, on the five trends that will shape wealth management in 2023 and beyond.
Shannon and Tim discuss:
- How technology acts as a deflationary force in an inflationary economy
- The role of AI in financial planning and investment management processes
- Why marketing automation and technology integration will be significant drivers of change
- Why wealth managers are investing in private equity, and why private equity firms are investing in wealth managers
