The increasing need to automate the wealth management process is anticipated to propel the growth of the market over the forecast period. Wealth management platforms can serve as a cost-effective alternative for users looking forward to automating workflow and managing wealth. Apart from an open architecture, these platforms can also provide omnibus access and help in digitalizing the overall wealth management process. These platforms can also be easily integrated into various wealth administration applications. Wealth managers have realized that affluent clients are focusing aggressively on diversifying their investments, meeting their personal goals, maintaining financial security, and protecting their wealth.

However, a looming lack of adequate knowledge about investment is keeping these affluent clients from fully achieving their financial goals. Hence, wealth managers have started using wealth management solutions to provide their clients with more tailored and holistic investment services. This is emerging among the major factors driving the adoption of wealth management software. The growing preference for digital investment management solutions among High-Net-Worth Individuals (HNWIs) is anticipated to propel the growth of the market. HNWIs are demanding more control and transparency in the way wealth managers are managing their wealth. At this juncture, wealth management software can guarantee HNWIs the level of control and transparency they desire in the management of their wealth.

Wealth management solutions can also help HNWIs in strategizing their wealth management plans more effectively using various analytical tools. The adoption of innovative advisor technology is gaining significant traction. Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities are particularly helping financial advisors in interpreting and analyzing large volumes of data and drafting better investment strategies for their clients. However, continued reliance on conventional asset management processes is challenging the growth of the market. Various other factors, such as lack of awareness about wealth management platforms and inadequate technical expertise among enterprise professionals are expected to restrain the growth of the market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to open new growth opportunities for the market. A myriad of social, political, and economic challenges has become apparent across the globe in the wake of the outbreak of the pandemic. These challenges are affecting both firms and investors. On the other hand, wealth management trends are also undergoing a paradigm shift and financial advisors are increasingly using wealth management solutions to manage accounting, estate planning, tax services, investment planning, and retirement planning, thereby driving the growth of the market.

Moreover, as part of the efforts to ensure the health and safety of clients, partners, employees, and other parties, particularly in the wake of the outbreak of the pandemic, wealth management firms are aggressively shifting to remote working models. The remote-first approach extends well beyond the financial workforce and puts a strong emphasis on adequate investments in client communications, remote onboarding, and advisory models.

Advisory Mode Insights

The human advisory mode segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for the largest share of 58.0% of the global revenue. Human advisory remains the first preference for several HNWIs across the globe owing to security concerns. Moreover, human advisory services also help in strengthening relationships with the clients and conveying and communicating wealth management strategies and plans to them more efficiently. However, the trends are changing gradually and clients have started preferring the hybrid advisory model over the human advisory model.

The robo advisory segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Robo advisors tend to be highly accurate, efficient, and more accessible as compared to other modes. Hence, the robo advisory platform is gradually emerging as a cost-effective alternative for several retail investors owing to the various benefits it can offer, such as ease of use, low-cost fee structure, and low to zero account minimums. Various factors, such as the intensifying competition, evolving client requirements, and rapidly changing market dynamics, are also expected to create new growth opportunities for the robo advisory segment.

Deployment Insights

The cloud segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for the maximum share of more than 56.0% of the global revenue. The segment is estimated to expand further at the fastest CAGR retaining the leading position throughout the forecast period. Several businesses across the globe are preferring cloud-based solutions owing to various benefits they can offer, such as scalability, agility, and easy access to data, among others. The cost-effectiveness and scalability offered by the cloud platform are allowing companies to develop innovative wealth management platforms more efficiently.

Financial advisory firms across the globe are also focusing on adopting cloud-based solutions as part of their efforts to reduce operational costs. The on-premise segment is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Several organizations still prefer on-premise deployment of solutions to ensure a higher level of control over all the systems and data. The on-premise deployment model also allows organizations to have more control over the implementation of software. While on-premise solutions ensure that business data is stored and handled internally, it also necessitates businesses to appoint dedicated, in-house IT staff for support and maintenance purposes.

Enterprise Size Insights

The large enterprises segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for the highest revenue share of more than 58.3%. On the basis of enterprise size, the global market has been bifurcated into large enterprises and Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Large enterprises across the globe are focusing on implementing new technical functionalities, and storage and processing technologies. Moreover, computing resources are getting more reliable, cheaper, and widely deployable. Hence, large-scale firms are trying to exploit all the opportunities that are critical to ensure success and growth in the long term.

Large enterprises are also focusing on adopting cloud-based wealth management solutions to help in managing the digital assets, accounting operations, and funds of their clients. The Small & Medium Enterprises(SMEs) segment is anticipated to register the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. The growing demand for wealth monitoring software by SMEs to effectively meet the regulatory requirements and to condense the asset monitoring costs is anticipated to drive the growth of the segment. The growing number of small & medium enterprises in emerging economies is also driving the demand for wealth management solutions.

Application Insights

The portfolio, accounting, & trading management segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for a revenue share of more than 23.0%. At a time when the demand for portfolio management and trading solutions is increasing; portfolio, accounting, & trading management solutions are allowing trading managers to concentrate on collaborative activities and serve their customers in a better manner. Portfolio, accounting, & trading managers are under severe pressure to effectively handle the data of their existing customers and are hence adopting wealth management solutions aggressively.

Wealth managers are also using portfolio, accounting, & trading management platforms to handle the financial data of their clients and effectively support them with the most profitable decision-making. The financial advice & management segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Several businesses across the globe are focusing on accelerating digitization, increasing operational efficiency, and strengthening client relationships, which is expected to propel the adoption of financial advice & management solutions across various end-use industries.

Nowadays, several wealth management firms are using wealth management software to manage their multiple clients more effectively. Integrated financial advice & management technology-enabled solutions help financial managers in collaborating with their clients to create investment proposals, identify financial goals, and effectively deliver financial advice.

End-use Insights

The banks segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for a revenue share of more than 28.5%. As the global economy continues to strengthen gradually, banks are anticipated to play a key role in managing the growing assets and wealth of individuals. Moreover, banks are also leveraging wealth management software to ensure a client-centric approach. Numerous wealth management software providers are focusing on providing end-to-end wealth management and processing solutions to cater to the evolving needs of banks, drive efficiency throughout banks’ business, and help banks in operating seamlessly in global markets.
