According to Isabella Fonseca, co-author of the report, Despite the belief that the advice market is mature, our findings indicate the online wealth management space is still in its infancy. Wealth management solutions have evolved quite rapidly over the past few years. What began as simple calculators intended for end-clients have turned into sophisticated customer relationship management and work productivity tools designed to improve the efficiency of financial advisors.

Sang Lee, co-author of the report adds, Representing 90 percent of individuals with at least US$100,000 in investable assets, the mass affluent segment cannot be ignored by institutions formulating long-term wealth management strategies. Financial institutions evaluating online wealth management solutions will focus on the breadth and ease of use of the system, flexibility, online collaboration capabilities, transactional capabilities, and value-added services.
