In my upcoming report, due out in the next several days, I take a look at wearable technology and the wealth management industry. What is wearable technology?Who are the possible users of wearable technology in the wealth management industry?What is the future for wearables in wealth management? Wearable technology is quickly gaining interest and momentum among consumers and enterprises. Wearables are digital devices that can be worn on the body (i.e., glasses, watches, cameras, clips), can be controlled with minimal manual input, and offer real time access to and the collection of data. This data can ultimately be used to influence real world decisions and behavior; wearables have the potential to alter the way we go about our daily lives. Wearables span multiple categories, including, but not limited to health, finance, and lifestyle. Achieving the "quantitative self" has never been easier. In this report, Celent will explore the role of wearables in wealth management and assess if wearables have the potential to move beyond the mass affluent and serve the HNW by, for example, integrating with an advisor’s CRM system. Celent will provide an overview of the wearables market, examine the drivers for adoption, study the potential impact of wearables on the retail investor and wealth managers, and conclude with a prospective look on wearables in the wealth management industry.
