Private banking CEO roundtable: What do you feel will be the challenges for 2012?

Private banking CEO roundtable participants

PdW, Deutsche The resolution for the euro sovereign debt crisis will take us well into 2012, if not 2013, so markets will remain volatile. Therefore investment advice to clients will need to be fairly cautious. Underlying wealth will continue to grow, but we expect to see greater competition in the private banking industry as banks focus on less capital-consuming businesses.

Volatility is likely to continue whether or not Europe is resolved because economies are growing at different paces. Client portfolios are underinvested in risk and overinvested in cash, and that will mean private banks will have to find places to put clients’ money to work effectively.
