Wealth management has always been perceived as a service for the rich. However, this is no longer true under today’s circumstances. The power of capital and economic conditions changed the industry’s characteristics. The convergence of finance and IT changed the wealth management service from a labor-intensive to an IT-intensive industry. As it continues to transform into a solution business that underlies a model portfolio, financial companies have no economic reason to provide the service only to the rich.
Wealth management’s increased popularity poses significant policy implications for the national three-tier, old-age income security system in Korea, which is experiencing the fastest population-aging in the world. It raises the possibility of combining the concept of wealth management and the three-tier system. Most policies related to the three-tier system focus on public sector pensions and retirement plans.
