My question: How will the rise of a multipolar world impact Western banks, particularly in private banking, and what implications might it have for high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals?

๐Ÿ”ต Western Values, Global Locations: Banks with Western origins will be forced to strictly adhere to the ethical, legal, and social norms of the West, regardless of their office location. This restriction may lead to challenges in serving clients in areas that donโ€™t necessarily identify with these values or qualify for a business relationship.

๐Ÿ›๏ธ Private Banking and Multipolarity: Itโ€™s not just possible, but likely, that the multipolar influence will also be evident in private banking. UHNWIs and HNWIs, who traditionally expect bespoke and discreet services, might seek special discretion and strategic diversification of their assets in both worlds due to geopolitical tensions.

๐Ÿ’ผ Opportunities & Challenges for HNWIs/UHNWIs: multipolarity offers opportunities for diversification and expansion into new markets. Conversely, it also means that bank selection, investment decisions, and portfolio strategies become more intricate, and new securities clearing agents emerge to adapt to the changing geopolitical realities.

๐ŸŒ Conclusion: In a Multipolar world, the long-lasting globalisation of Western banks, securities clearing houses, and capital market participants will take a hit.
