Is wealth-management a marketing step too far? (MW April 12).
As a well-off member of the management classes I am slap-bang in the middle of the banks’ wealth-management target market. But why would I want to use their services? Surely my current and savings accounts will serve?
I have no wish to spend more time interacting with my bank than is strictly necessary, and, to be honest, the less glossy printed matter I get from them the better. It’s too slippery to put to the obvious use.
The great US author Iceberg Slim said that you can’t con someone who isn’t blinded by greed. I hope the wealthy classes can see through this little trick.
