Summary
Since the introduction of the Retail Distribution Review (RDR) in 2012, the UK wealth management competitive landscape has undergone a steady evolution. New business models have emerged as both new and established players seek ways to address the range of financial demands of retail, mass affluent, and cost-conscious high net worth (HNW) individuals. Several digital platforms have launched in the UK market in 2016, ranging from extensions of traditional wealth managers to robo-advisors. With the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) addressing issues of regulated technology and improved communication, initiatives will continue to develop going forward.

Key Findings
- UK wealth manager activity is concentrated in London and South East England. This is unsurprising, as these regions are home to nearly a third of all UK-based HNW individuals.

- The market leader in terms of assets under management (AUM) is St. James's Place, followed by Coutts and Barclays. The AUM of the top 20 UK wealth managers grew by over 8% year-on-year between 2014 and 2015.

- The advice market continues to be a key focus for the FCA, which introduced a series of proposals in March 2016 to improve access. One such proposal centers around an 'Advice Unit' to help grow the automated advice market in the UK by helping firms develop mass-market automated advice models.

- Merger and acquisition (MandA) activity has largely been driven by established players wanting to capture greater market share or expand their client offerings. For example, Aegon acquiring Cofunds from Legal and General and Cazenove Capital Management acquiring the wealth management business of C. Hoare and Co.

- To resonate with audiences who prefer digital-only solutions and simplified advice, the robo-advice market in the UK grew with new entrants Wealthify and Munnypot.
