Wealth managers targeting HNW entrepreneur clients should foster inter-departmental collaboration, says GlobalData 

Wealth managers targeting HNW entrepreneur clients should foster inter-departmental collaboration, says GlobalData 

While client referrals remain the single most important means of acquisition, wealth managers reaching out to high-net-worth (HNW) entrepreneurs should foster inter-departmental collaboration to beat the competition, says leading data and analytics company GlobalData.

According to the company’s report, more than one third (35.7%) of HNW entrepreneurs have been sourced through client referrals, making it the single most important channel of acquisition globally.

While this means that generating positive word of mouth is paramount to be able to leverage client contacts, wealth managers should broaden their focus when reaching out to entrepreneurs.


Reportedly, out of the 10.5 million HNW individuals across the globe, 4.8 million (46%) are entrepreneurs, making them an attractively large but competitive target market.

Heike van den Hoevel, Wealth Management Senior Analyst at GlobalData, says: “The sheer size of the market has also given rise to fierce competition with the vast majority of wealth managers operating dedicated programs for entrepreneurs. Consequently, providers have to up their game when reaching out to this segment to beat the competition.”

The company’s proprietary Global Wealth Managers Survey reveals that just 7.8% of HNW entrepreneur clients have been sourced through investment banking referrals.

Heike explains: “Referrals from ones investment or business banking department do not only provide an important source of new business, but allow wealth managers to service clients more effectively, and increase fee income by leveraging cross-selling opportunities.

“Wealth managers need to ensure that frontline staff has a thorough understanding of the other unit’s product and value propositions. At the same time, well-defined incentive structures are needed to foster a culture that promotes interdepartmental collaboration and encourages staff to share customer information.

“Providers that are able to leverage their wealth management as well as investment and business banking capabilities will be well placed to generate additional business through referrals, and boost their bottom line thanks to increased product sales.”
