Why are we hosting this event?

We are delighted to host in Dubai our 2nd annual event for the local wealth management industry in the Middle East.

There is clearly a lot of potential for this market to develop and flourish – assuming it can overcome various challenges. At a client service level, a big focus must be delivering the right advice from people capable and competent to do so.

It should be about more of a needs-based conversation to ensure more balanced portfolios. From diversification to wealth structuring to client education to higher standards of professionalism, therefore, organisations need to position their businesses in line with the opportunities that exist.

Further, there is a lot more to be done within local financial institutions to position their wealth management offerings as more strategic within the wider group. This includes investing sufficiently in the technology, platforms and overall infrastructure.

Who is it for?

This event is for anyone servicing wealthy clients – including Retail Banks, Private Banks, IFAs, Family Offices, Insurance Companies, and other Independent Wealth Management Firms.

The individuals who will attend include CEOs, COOs, other senior management, product gatekeepers and investment specialists, as well as business heads across technology, compliance, operations, and advisory and sales.
