Wealth Management Research

Based on the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS)’s 2019 Singapore Asset Management Survey: Singapore – The Asset Management and Sustainability Centre in Asia Pacific, Singapore’s AUM grew in tandem with the global trend, rising by 15.7% in 2019 to reach S$4.0 trillion or US$2.9 trillion. Singapore continues to serve as the Global-Asia Pacific gateway for asset managers and investors. In 2019, 76% of AUM originated from outside of Singapore, and 69% of AUM was invested into the Asia Pacific region.

Against this backdrop, the Business Families Institute @Singapore Management University (BFI@SMU), is pleased to launch the Wealth Management Insight Series, to support business families, family offices and the larger the wealth management industry in (1) gathering insights into family businesses’ wealth creation, preservation and management both in Singapore and internationally; (2) identifying the needs of the external asset management (EAM) industry, and (3) uncovering the skills gaps of investment managers and family advisers in serving family business firms and family offices.
