Front Office 2018: Structuring the Front Office for Scalability

Compeer’s latest Industry Report revealed that just 39% of the firms in the UK wealth management industry were scalable. Scalability is a key issue in particular for the wealth management front office, and Compeer’s 2017 research into the department found that 64% of firms believed there was a conflict between trying to provide key clients with a high end client experience that felt individual and was at the same time scalable.

However, with just under half of firms aiming for approximately 100% growth in assets under management over five years, how should their front offices be structured in order to achieve this growth in a scalable way?

Compeer will be drawing from our extensive database of over 20 years’ worth of benchmarking data in order to investigate the effects of the following on scalability: front office productivity, service offering, organisational structure, and reward structures.

How To Achieve Profitable Growth

Tuesday 1st October 2024
15.00 - 18.30

Compeer, who have benchmarked the UK wealth management industry for over 30 years, have highlighted that just under 40% of wealth management firms currently make a loss or return less than 10% net margin. The average net margin for the wealth management industry, as a whole for 2022, is 23%, which appears healthy.

This event will examine why so many firms are poorly performing and the practical measures they can take to improve their performance.
