Differentiating the client experience is crucial in ensuring that traditional wealth managers stay relevant to clients amid challenges from disruptive business models.

BlackRock’s third annual European survey of private banks and wealth mangers shows that regulation, technology and margin pressure are the top three concerns this year. The discussion revolves around which plates are necessary to keep spinning, and which can be a lower priority.

How should client-facing firms adapt to the new model?
