Lately, there’s been a noticeable surge in the assets managed by offshore banking centres. However, there are some pressing questions we need to address:

1️⃣ Is the rise real? While assets under management (AUM) in offshore centres are increasing, is this merely a reflection of the overall increase in wealthy individuals, or is there a more profound trend at play?

2️⃣ The End of Offshore Private Banking? With tighter cross-border regulations, many believe offshore private banking centres might become extinct. But are local markets experiencing growth as a result? Could the decline in offshore hubs pave the way for domestic banking resurgence?

3️⃣ Goodbye Jet-setting Private Banker? The archetype of the globe-trotting private banker might be under threat. Will the rise of stricter regulations make these business-class travels a thing of the past?

4️⃣ Branding over Relationship? As the industry evolves, will clients be acquired based solely on the financial institution’s brand name, side lining the importance of the personal banker-client relationship?

5️⃣ Finding the Right Strategy: Given these challenges and trends, what’s the ideal approach for wealth managers and banking institutions?

Let’s start a discussion! Your thoughts, insights, and predictions are invaluable.
