Summary

The majority of investors are now active on social media on a daily basis, and wealth managers should embrace this both on the company-level and on the relationship manager-level. Social media adds value in a number of ways. Companies can benefit from social media in promoting their brand, enhancing thought leadership and investment opportunities, reaching out to a younger target audience, as well as servicing customers. Relationship managers can leverage social media in researching and reaching out to prospective clients, nurturing client relationships, and building their personal brands.

Key Findings

  • While the majority of consumers are now active on social media on a daily basis, the frequency of social media use decreases with age: 94.2% of investors aged 18-24 use social media at least daily, while just 44.1% of those aged 65+ log in daily.
  • Company policy and the feeling that social media is too public are the most often cited reasons for wealth managers not being active on social media channels.
  • The most popular activity companies undertake on social media is brand promotion, at 72.6% of respondents, followed by the promotion of new investment opportunities, thought leadership, and services.
  • Client servicing is not yet among the activities wealth management companies regularly practice via social media. Only 31.7% of firms respond to client queries via social media - a very low percentage given the amount of time customers spend on social media.
  • For relationship managers contacting prospects, the leading use of social media is the opportunity to build their personal brand followed by the opportunities to research and contact prospects.
