Prospering in the Digital Era: Reshaping Wealth Management in MEA

For many markets across the MEA region, the next 3-5 years will be incredibly important in shaping the future of the wealth management sector.

As the mass affluent and HNWI segment across the region expands and developments in the wealth management industry progress, it is incumbent on wealth managers to stay up to date with emerging trends including technological advances, the Great Generational Wealth transfer and the rise of digital assets in order to compete for wallet share in the increasingly crowded marketplace.

Each year, Temenos produces a paper based on research from our global customer base, which aims to capture the key global trends we see in the wealth management space. For 2023, this included topics such as Digital assets, Data Analytics, Hyper-personalization, SaaS and Cloud Hosted platforms, ESG strategies and of course, the ongoing Generational Wealth Transfer.
