Wealth Management

A wide range of clients, including the wealthy, high-net-worth (HNW), and ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) people and families are served by wealth management (WM) or wealth management advisory (WMA). It involves organizing  and managing finances to support wealth growth, preservation, and protection while distributing it to the family in a manner that is both tax-efficient and consistent with their preferences. Wealth management encompasses all aspects of tax planning, wealth protection, estate planning, succession planning, and family governance.

Some businesses have switched to a model that questions clients about life goals, work surroundings, and spending patterns as a way to improve communication as awareness of wealth management has grown. Wealth management was more than just an investment advice discipline, according to the industry standard. In order to more clearly differentiate their wealth management services from less expensive brokerage firms, United Capital relaunched its wealth management offerings in 2015 under the name "financial life management." The programme Merrill Lynch Clear, which motivates investors to attain and identify life goals and includes an exclusive educational programme for clients' children, was launched by Merrill Lynch in the same year.
