by Released

The global income of women will grow from $13 trillion to $18 trillion in the next five years, and by 2028 women will control 75 percent of the discretionary spending around the world, according to the "The European Wealth Management Market for UHNW Women", which was added to’s offering.

Yet women remain an underserved segment of the wealth management market. EY research in 2016 showed the majority of wealth managers regard gender as the least important factor when considering client segmentation.

This new report analyses the background to and reasons for the growth in women’s wealth at the ultra-high-net worth level in Europe and forecasts how it will develop and continue to grow over the next five years.

The report then focuses on a series of profiles of ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) women in each Western European country to establish a valuable picture of the affluent community of European women and to show that they do not form a homogeneous group and that their financial planning needs and investment aims need to be addressed on an individual basis.

At the highest levels of the UHNW segment, the report then goes on to explore the investment strategies in selected European single-family offices in which women are the principals or co-principals.

The report then describes certain issues and problems in the services provided to UHNW women by some, but by no means all, wealth managers.

The report concludes by undertaking a competitive analysis of selected private banks and multi-family offices in Europe that have developed a positive approach to addressing the UHNW women’s wealth management market.
