This report provides a roundup of innovations within the global retail wealth management market, including subscription models, personalization, and offshore investments.

The number of retail investors grew substantially over the course of the pandemic, with the number of emerging affluent investors rising 18.2% in 2021 alone. Meanwhile, mass affluent investors increased by 8.8% year on year. The larger investor pool has spurred a renewed interest in serving the investment needs of consumers with modest portfolios. A number of fintechs and established wealth managers have rolled out new products, service models, and technology to economically address the investment needs of this growing investor class.


  • 2022 global GDP growth has been revised down from 4.4% to 3.5%. Revisions of a similar magnitude preceded the 2008 and 2020 recessions.
  • The subscription model truly arrived in wealth when Charles Schwab adopted it for Intelligent Portfolios Premium - the company’s hybrid robo-advice offering.
