Grand Cayman wealth management benefits from technology

It is good to see that our competitors are also beginning to cotton on to the benefits offered by technological advances in the wealth management sector, with 60 per cent of wealth managers conceding that fintech poses a real threat to those financial advisors and wealth managers who fail to innovate.

“Sophisticated investors are still willing to pay for expert knowledge and advice, so the human adviser will never be completely replaced. However, the rise of new distribution models and players means the wealth management industry is on the cusp of change,” commented Iain Chidgey, vice president of Delphix, the firm which commissioned the research.
