APAC’s great intergenerational wealth transfer

Three key strategies for turning heirs into clients

A historic transfer of wealth in APAC is underway. Dubbed the Great Wealth Transfer, we are in the early stages of the largest intergenerational wealth transmission in history, as baby boomers pass on their assets to Gen X, millennial and Gen Z successors over the coming decades.

What happens when clients leave their wealth to heirs? This paper explores the most important strategies wealth managers can implement to remain the provider of choice.


The APAC region accounts for around 42% of global wealth


Studies suggest that at least 80% of millennial heirs will seek out a new financial advisor in place of their parents’ wealth manager after they inherit


Half of HNWIs under 40 say they are not satisfied with their wealth manager’s personalised offerings and the digital interfaces provided by their firm
