The wealth management industry in India is at a tipping point. The twin drivers of financialisation and formalisation are providing enough tail winds for it to grow by leaps and bounds. What is even more encouraging is the growing demand for competent manpower in this space.
In recent years, we have seen the wealth management industry emerge from the shadows of the banking and broking industry. Newer and bolder business models are making this industry an attractive space to be in. India’s favourable demographics and high growth is triggering a boom not only of the middle-class population but also of a wealthier class. With increase in wealth, there is a clamour for professional advice and several Indian financial houses are investing heavily in the wealth management business. While we have several dedicated certifications in the wealth space, the biggest challenge to the growth and credibility of the industry is the lack of qualified, competent, and skilled manpower. CFA Institute, with its recent focus on private wealth is poised to benefit from the huge demand for advisors and relationship managers.
