Highlights of this title

The global stock of non-resident Indians (NRIs) continues to expand, with the highest concentrations in Saudi Arabia, the US, the UAE and the UK.

Datamonitor research suggests that NRI clients based in Europe are more likely to insist on greater involvement in the management of their portfolios. In fact, 66% of European wealth managers described their NRI clients desire to take an active role in their own portfolio management/investment decisions as above-average or high.

Major wealth managers also perceive the value of targeting the NRI market by establishing private banking operations in their homeland. SG Private Bankings Singapore office serves as the base for its non-resident Indian (NRI) business line. However, the bank also leverages its on-the-ground presence in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai.
