For clients it is key that their goals are aligned with the goals of their advisor. Therefore, more and more clients are looking for truly independent advisors and are not trusting their banks the same as in the past. We are seeing a separation of the different services advice, wealth management, custody and transactions, no provider can be a leader in all dimensions. Many banks are only focused on the profit and the revenues of the next quarter, which in many cases is not aligned with the long-term interests of their clients. That is one reason why clients are searching for independent advisors. ZWEI Wealth is only committed to the goals of their clients and supports their clients in the choice of the best providers for the different services. Also, ZWEI Wealth ensures that clients receive an attractive pricing, full transparency, and a periodic comparison of the performance of the providers they have chosen.
