Best Private Bank – Asia Pacific UHNW
head of Wealth Management, Asia Pacific
While global asset owners faced unprecedented downward market pressure in 2022 from the dual challenges of runaway inflation and recession risks, UHNWs in Asia — particularly in North Asia — also had to navigate complicated geopolitics and a third year of COVID-19 disruptions.
As a private bank dedicated to Asia’s UHNWs, it is imperative that we understand clients’ specific financial and non-financial needs, and that we have the expertise, products and platform to address them.
As a global integrated financial services firm with a leading investment bank and the largest wealth manager globally with US$4.2 trillion in assets under advisory, Morgan Stanley has the institutional strength and connectivity to address the sophisticated demands of Asia’s UHNWs across countries and asset classes. We understand that UHNWs expect and demand nothing but the best.
What was behind the judges’ decision?

In addition to helping clients navigate volatility, the move will herald an increasing share of recurring revenue at the top line
- Demonstrable evidence of Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management Asia making the most of content and expertise at the group-level for private clients’ benefit — such as through the 14 conferences and summits that were held during 2022
