Succession and Trusts in Wealth Management
“The conditions are therefore ripe to address the succession of wealth as globally, many of the HNWI and mass affluent segments are from the baby boomer generation, now in their 50s and beyond. Commentators often say that we are now experiencing the age of the greatest transfer of wealth! This generation will see the largest transfer of money in the history of the world. The Asia-Pacific region now leads the world with the largest amount of HNWI wealth. According to the Asia-Pacific Wealth Report 2016, publishes by Capgemini, Asia-Pacific HNWI in Asia-Pacific population grew by 9.4 percent to pass 5 million individuals.

Wealth Management in Singapore is expected to feature strongly in the next few years. If Singapore continues to be perceived as a stable and well-regulated financial centre, it should be an attractive jurisdiction for wealth management. Along with it, financial services including trusts and other fiduciary services will grow in tandem.”
