Prepare for a classic nineteenth century banking panic 21/10/2014
Pessimism is hardly in short supply in the current environment, notwithstanding the efforts of the UK and US economies to reach “escape velocity”. If markets are forward looking, and the events of the past month or so are not just a transitory blip on the way to a series of new highs, it would appear that more trouble is about to hit the real economy. Deflation, or the threat of deflation, is in the air.

Wealth management refocus continues to pay dividends at Morgan Stanley 20/10/2014
Wealth management appears to have a reduced profile at many banking groups in both the US and Europe. But this appears not to be the case at Morgan Stanley, which has just reported its third quarter earnings (see accompanying article).

Could insurance companies assume primacy in the UK and other wealth management markets? 20/10/2014
The role of insurance companies, and especially life assurance firms, in the wealth management sector tends to be overlooked. “Wealth management” is often considered to be synonymous with private banking, especially at the top end of the market.

The words “deja vu” should immediately come to mind on first acquaintance with the news that Old Mutual Wealth is to acquire London-based Quilter Cheviot, at least to anyone with a reasonably long memory. For Old Mutual, if not Old Mutual Wealth, is no stranger to the UK wealth management market, especially when it comes to acquiring private client stockbrokers and investment managers at inflated prices.

Market collapse or correction: It's that old but not that familiar October feeling 17/10/2014
October and stock market collapses go together. The Wall Street Crash of 1929 occurred in October when on 28 October (Black Monday) and 29 October (Black Tuesday) the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 12 percent and 13 percent respectively. On 19 October 1987 (another “Black Monday”) the Dow plunged by 20 percent, an event replicated by major market indices around the world. More recently in 2008 the Dow fell by around 14 percent.

In the post Retail Distribution Review (RDR) world, management information at wealth management firms must include four key areas to ensure a firm is keeping within the spirit and rules of the new regulation, Neil Walkling, consultant and conduct risk specialist at Bovill told the 2014 PAM Annual Operations Dinner earlier this week (14/10/2014)

Forget Thomas Piketty: Buy Credit Suisse 16/10/2014
With 577 pages of text and another 108 pages of notes, “contents in detail”, lists of tables and illustrations, and indexes Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” is a doorstop of a book. It is also deeply flawed. According to a number of critics, including the Financial Times’ Chris Giles and Ferdinando Giugliano (see The Financial Times, 24 May 2014), both its main conclusions and the data sources that underpin them have many shortcomings.
