  3. 3. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsProject introductionThe aim of this research project is to put forward a sector valuation and economic contribution of the UK wealth managementindustry to the UK economy so as to allow the sector the opportunity to create and deliver a structured message of value andinput to the relevant influencing and decision making bodies in the UK such as the regulators and politicians. This will see thesector establish what is common practice for other areas of commerce and financial services.The contents of this document and following work are therefore intended to become the backbone of the industry’s statement ofvalue which can then be utilised in its interaction with the regulatory community as well as the wider public arena. Following thisfirst valuation the sector can then build on this analysis to deliver an on-going message around its value and future contribution.In terms of the research focus sitting at the centre of this scoping project, the aim has been to provide both a quantitative sizingand assessment of the sector and its lead data points backed by a qualitative evaluation of the sector’s shape and activities.This work and its outcomes will be the first such pan-industry sponsored assessment prepared in the context of becoming theindustry’s public statement. As such UK wealth management can start to establish its voice in the manner of other financialservices industry sub-sectors such as insurance, banking and fund management.The research has been developed by the Scorpio Partnership team with the support, guidance and contribution where requiredfrom the steering committee and its stakeholders. The steering committee concept and solution has been co-developed andmanaged by event solutions specialists Owen James and public relations advisor Lansons Communications alongside ScorpioPartnership.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 3

Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsTen segments of product and serviceIntroduction HNW PrivateIn order to arrive at a full valuation of the UK wealth Banksmanagement sector the research divided the market into tenlines of business which can be seen as the leading wealthmanagement product and service providers to the end HNWand affluent client base. Each segment has been looked atindividually to understand its individual size, participants,activities and so on to arrive at an estimation of value. Eachvaluation then forms part of the complete UK wealthmanagement whole.Those ten segments break down into two overarching groups:Wealth Managers – the businesses that manage the assets ofthe end individual through various products and strategies.There are four providers in this group – the HNW PrivateBanks, the Mass Affluent Banks, the Private Client InvestmentManagers (PCIMs) and the Independent Financial Advisers(IFAs) PlatformsService providers – the businesses that provide specificservices whether advisory or through a product offering toboth the Wealth Managers and the end client. There are sixproviders in this group – Insurance, Platforms, Lawyers, Key The wealth managers The service providersAccountants, Trustees, and ancillary service providers such asIT, consultants, information and research and so on.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 4
  5. 5. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsUK Wealth Management: So what?HeadlinesThe UK wealth management market is a major contributor to the UK financial services landscape and wider national economy. Intotal the sector is responsible for the employment of in excess 124,000 often highly educated staff, who collectively are paidalmost GBP8 billion in annual remuneration at an average of almost GBP63,000. The industry manages assets in excess ofGBP2 trillion for an international client base, produces over GBP30 billion in annual revenue, reports profits of almost GBP5billion, and contributes in the region of GBP7.6 billion to the exchequer through all forms of taxation.Based on this data it is clear, that this is a huge sector of the UK economy. Particularly when the data is considered incomparison to other sectors and the UK government’s other income.Employees and remuneration – the national contextWell, with 124,000 employees, looking at other areas of financial services the sector is 31% of the size of the UK retail bankingmarket (400,000 employees), 43% the size of the UK insurance market (290,000 employees), 248% of the size of the UK’s fundmanagement sector (50,000) employees. All-in the sector is 12.5% of the size of the entire UK financial services sector byheadcount. Looking outside of the pure financial services market place, the sector is 146% the size of all private practicesolicitors in the UK,And the sector’s employees are far better remunerated on average than other workers in the UK. The UK wealth managementsector average is near to GBP63,000 per year while the average worker in the UK receives between GBP25,000 and GBP30,000.Taxation – the national contextWith a total contribution to the UK government of up to GBP7.6 billion through all forms of business and personal taxation thesector contributes approximately 1.6% of all government tax receipts based on the Exchequer’s 2009/2010 income. And that isbased on some conservative estimates. A more aggressive estimate, or performance based on the removal of certain barriers tobusiness, could see the sector perform two, three or four times stronger for a far greater contribution.In comparison, the full financial services contributed GBP53 billion in taxation for 2009/2010 for 11% of all government taxreceipts. Insurance pays in the region of GBP10.4 billion or 2.1%.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 5

  7. 7. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsThe assets under management pictureAUM commentaryThe UK wealth management market, as sized by the Scorpio Partnership Wealth Distribution Model, controls assets in the regionof GBP2.195 trillion. This assets under management total is the base by which the market extracts a revenue, profit, pays taxes,employs staff and contributes to the wider economy in many and varying forms. The following results and valuations for eachsegment are ultimately extracted from products and services supplied against this asset pool.By segment the HNW Private Banks are the lead market participant by AUM with 40.4% of the whole or GBP886 billion. Themarket’s large base of IFA businesses is second with GBP591 billion for 26.9% share, followed by the mass affluent banks,mostly business lines of the large retail banks, with GBP501 billion or 22.8% of the AUM base. Lastly in this analysis come thePCIMs with GBP217 billion or 9.9% of the total AUM figure. 40.4% 22.8% 9.9% 26.9%© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 7
  8. 8. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsThe revenue pictureRevenue commentaryA conservative conclusion across the ten segments of product and service proposition to a HNW and mass affluent client basecreates a revenue total of just over GBP30 billion. The four Wealth Manager segments deliver 63.7% of that revenue at GBP19.1billion with, interestingly, the mass affluent banks able to extract the greatest value from their asset base. The service providerscreate a collective revenue stream of GBP10.9 billion, dominated by the insurance segment with GBP7.9 billion in revenueattributable to HNW and affluent client premiums.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 8
  9. 9. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsThe pre-tax profit picturePre-tax profit commentaryThe pre-tax profit data for the segments reveal a mixed bag of performance both within and between segments. This tells a storyof cost pressures, particularly around employee costs, technology requirements and regulation. With these mostly conservativeconclusions, the sector collectively is performing below 50% of its potential. However, across the ten segments here wecalculate a collective pre-tax profit total in excess of GBP4.9 billion. The Wealth Managers contribute 73% of that total profit poolwith, again, the mass affluent banks leading. Among the service providers insurance and ancillary produce the largest profit pool.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 9
  10. 10. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsThe corporate tax and employer NIC pictureCorporate tax and employer NIC commentaryTranslating the pre-tax profit pool into corporate tax paid to the government, the effective tax rate jumps about and is extremelyhard to calculate across firms and segments. Therefore, the date below is reflective most often of a 15% corporate tax estimationbased on limited data. This is true for all segments.This analysis is again a conservative valuation yet still presents a collective contribution on the corporation tax side of GBP730million. Interestingly, due to the high salaries of many of the professionals in the ten segments, employer national insurance isoften greater in value than the corporate tax, particularly when estimated at 15%. In fact employer NIC totals GBP942 million.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 10
  11. 11. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering Committee Coordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and Lansons The headcount picture Headcount commentary The UK wealth management sector has a total headcount of approximately 124,000 according to this analysis. 83,211 of that number work within the Wealth Managers while 40,803 are counted within the Service Providers. The biggest employers by number are the HNW Private Banks, the Mass Affluent Banks and the IFAs, each with 20,000 or more in total headcount. For each segment, where relevant and possible the total headcount has also been split into client facing and non-client facing staff. Naturally, in most cases, the former will be more highly paid than the latter but the split is nevertheless relevant.* The headcount total for trusts refers to only those employed by offshore firms not double counted elsewhere in the analysis © Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 11
  12. 12. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering Committee Coordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and Lansons The total headcount remuneration picture Headcount remuneration commentary Across a total headcount of 124,014 the sector pays total remuneration of GBP7,802 million for a total average remuneration across all jobs of GBP57,106 per annum. Of that full market total GBP5,042 million, or 64.6% of the total, is paid by the Wealth Managers to their 83,211 staff at an average of GBP60,666 while the GBP2.760 million paid by the Service Providers to their 40,803 staff comes in at an average of GBP67,642.* The remuneration total for trusts refers to only those employed by offshore firms not double counted elsewhere in the analysis © Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 12
  13. 13. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering Committee Coordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and Lansons The personal income and NI tax picture Personal tax and employee NI commentary The personal tax paid by the UK wealth management sector is high in comparison to many other sectors of business due to the high level of remuneration received by many in the ten segments. From the total headcount of 124,014 the total tax result is GBP2,624 million of which GBP2,134 million is paid in personal income tax and GBP490 million is paid in employee NIC. In other areas of financial services, particularly retail, there is a closer relationship between the amount of income tax paid and that of employee NIC. However, as many employees in this sector are high earners the amount paid in personal income tax far exceeds that paid in Employee NIC.* The personal taxation total for trusts refers to only those employed by offshore firms not double counted elsewhere in the analysis © Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 13
  14. 14. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsThe full taxation contribution of UK WMCommentary on the full tax contributionAccording to this analysis, the total tax contribution of the UK wealth management market, when considering corporation tax andemployer national insurance on the business side and employee PAYE and employee national insurance on the employee side,reaches to GBP4.3 billion. The employee part of that totals GBP2.624 billion while the business part totals GBP1.672 billion.On the employee side that can be seen as a realistic figure based on headcount and remuneration levels. On the business side,however, this analysis has assumed a conservative performance for the most part and an effective corporation tax contribution ofjust 15% and therefore, for that element, the real amount is very possibly far higher.However, using analysis from PWC in a report called The Total Tax Contribution of UK Financial Services from 2010 that lookedinto the full taxation contribution of financial services firms, we have sought to apply the PWC analysis to estimate the fulltaxation effect for UK wealth management market.Using that, we can see that while the total tax calculation of GBP4,296 million within this analysis is in itself a large contribution,the full effect totals GBP7.6 billion once the other forms of relevant UK taxation on business in financial services is applied. Thatis GBP3.593 billion for all business taxes and GBP4.028 billion for all employee taxes.While a full analysis of the elements that form the tax payments of the UK wealth management market is not possible here, andno doubt some elements of the PWC analysis would not be relevant for all of the segments included here, the above resultnevertheless reveals a sizeable contribution to the UK government’s coffers. Even if it were discounted by 10% or 20%.In terms of the application of PWC analysis, for both business and employee tax we have based the comparison on the main tax,corporation tax for business, and PAYE for employees. For business tax, therefore, we have assumed the UK wealthmanagement total of GBP730 million equals 16.6% (see charts on next slide). For both we also retain the UK wealthmanagement market employer national insurance total rather than using the PWC percentage.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 14

The proposition does not just cover investments but often banking, trust and fiduciary, financial planning and a whole host of other specialist services from art investing to philanthropy to business succession and so on Among the service providers in this segment are numerous historical names such as those from the old merchant banking dynasties such as Rothschild Wealth Management & Trust and Schroders and other old and entrenched names such as Coutts and Kleinwort Benson. However the segment is also deepened by the presence of numerous international providers from the universal and investment banking world such as BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch, Standard Chartered and UBS plus many more of their competitors Market participants target clients at varying levels of wealth from right down at GBP100,000 to GBP250,000 in investable assets through to GBP10 million and upwards.Service overview Market size and participantsThe HNW private banking market offers the deepest and widest Scorpio market sizing analysis puts the HNW private banks at theservice and product set often structured across client segments. head of the market in terms of assets under management.

  20. 20. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsThe HNW private banksMarket revenue Commentary on market revenue The Scorpio Partnership wealth distribution model sizes the AUM controlled by this segment at GBP886 billion or 40.4% of the GBP2.19 trillion of assets managed by 100bps revenue – all wealth managers in the UK. As such it is the largest sub-segment of the four historical benchmark wealth managers as measured by AUM In terms of the revenue the industry is able to extract from the AUM it manages, 75bps revenue – traditionally it has looked to take approximately 100bps or 1% of assets per annum. today‘s performance Achieving that performance on today’s AUM base would deliver a revenue for the segment of just under GBP8.9 billion However, current market data would suggest a performance drag due to factors such as increased regulation, pushing average revenue extraction closer to 75bps. Based on that performance the segment is extracting approximately GBP6.64 billion in annual revenue from it AUM base. Commentary on profit and corporate tax Based on the above revenue figures, Scorpio research and received industryProfit and corporate tax submissions suggests that on approximately 75bps average income the market is able to extract in the region of a 10% margin or profit. At that level the segment is therefore delivering an annual profit figure of GBP664 million That relatively low profitability is again a reflection of tightening margins and pressure on the cost base Looking more optimistically, if the market can relieve some of its cost pressures and move to a profit margin of 20%, segment profit jumps to GBP1.32 billion The corporation tax contribution of the segment is difficult to establish due to the complexity of the calculation. Therefore, for this segment and others we have taken two levels – 15%, as the data analysed suggests an effective rate for the segment around that level, and the standard rate of 28% Therefore, on revenue at 75bps and profit at 10%, the corporation tax total comes to GBP100 million at 15% and GBP186 million at 28%.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 20
  21. 21. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsThe HNW private banksNumber of employees Total headcount = Commentary on employees 22,700 Based on Scorpio Partnership analysis of the data available via open sources or that was provided to us we have sized the UK HNW private banking employee pool at 22,700 staff 30.5% of that number, or 6,923, are what the sector would call client-facing such as private bankers, fund managers, financial planners and so on. The remaining 69.5%, 15,777 employees, includes management, middle and back office The Scorpio Partnership analysis of the available data achieves a ratio of staff to AUM equal to 1 staff member to every GBP39 million in AUM. Applying that ratio to the full segment AUM of GBP886 billion gives 22,700 employees for the segment Commentary on salaries, tax and NI contributions Based on Scorpio Partnership analysis of pay levels in the private banking sector and an estimation of weightings of staff across remuneration levels, total remuneration for the 22,700 segment headcount is GBP1,834 million for an averageIncome tax and NI contributions of GBP80,798 For the 6,923 client facing staff, total salary cost is GBP678 million, or an average of 531 GBP98,000. For the 15,777 other staff the total spend is GBP1,156 million for an Total tax = average of GBP73,250 GBP855 million These totals lead to a total tax contribution of GBP854.8 million – broken down at GBP531 million in income tax, GBP102.3 million in employee national insurance and GBP221.5 million in employer national insurance To arrive at that tax contribution calculation, we distributed the total headcount 221.5 across ten remuneration levels (20, 30, 40, 50, 75, 100, 150, 250, 350 and 500k) and weighted staff according to our analysis and estimations of ratios of client facing to 102.3 non-client facing staff, management to staff and so on. For instance, on the client facing side, based on our research we have estimated 2% (of the 6.923 allocation) are the high earners and on around GBP500,000 total remuneration© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 21
  22. 22. Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsThe IFAsIntroduction The IFA market in the UK has long been seen as a provider to the mass retail market and lower end mass affluent but it is clear that a major part of the segment has a deep and entrenched penetration of both the mid-net worth and high-net worth wealth segments. The one significant difference perhaps between this segment and the HNW Private Banks or the PCIMs is the more domestic nature of the client base The product and service proposition is generally quite broad but less sophisticated than its peer group in the HNW Private Banks or PCIMs and is reliant on the coverage and sales skill of the IFA who will work often as his or her own profit and loss Significantly, the IFA community in general and a number of its individual firms have far greater geographic coverage than the vast majority of their HNW Private Banks or PCIMs peers who are far more likely to be London-based only.Service overview Market size and participantsThe IFA market has an increasingly broad offer to the HNW and Scorpio Partnership analysis of the AUM controlled by the leadingmass affluent market place.

Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsThe IFAsMarket revenue Commentary on market revenue The Scorpio Partnership wealth distribution model sizes the AUM controlled by this segment at GBP591 billion or 27% of the GBP2.19 trillion of assets managed by all wealth managers in the UK In terms of the revenue the industry is able to extract from the AUM it manages, like 100bps revenue other segments, it has looked to take approximately 100bps or more from the assets managed. Achieving 100bps on the current asset base would deliver total segment revenue of approximately GBP5.9 billion 75bps revenue However, this is a segment under pressure due to the rising costs of business, compliance and regulation and therefore taking a more conservative estimate of revenue the 75bps average on assets is a fairer reflection of current performance. On that basis the sector is producing an annual revenue of GBP4.4 billion. Commentary on profit and corporate tax Research by Plimsoll puts the average the IFA profitability level as low as 7%. At that level the segment under analysis here will only produce a collective profit totalProfit and corporate tax of GBP310 million from revenue of GBP4.4 billion Scorpio Partnership analysis of the MNW to HNW segment, however, suggests a profitability closer to 15%. At that level the segment therefore delivers a total profit figure of GBP665 million, again from 75bps average revenue A more positive segment production, one based on a relief of some of the cost burdens currently experienced, would see the market move back to a revenue extraction of 100bps on AUM and a profitability of 15% which would produce total revenue of GBP5.9 billion and profit of GBP887 million In terms of the tax take from this segment at the 75bps revenue and 15% profit level, again assuming the two levels of likely corporation tax of 15% and 28%, the total contribution is GBP100 million at 15% tax and GBP186 million at 28%.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 23

At that ratio, the 8,660 figure for client facing figure produces a support staff number of 13,951 staff for a total segment headcount of 22,611 staff. Commentary on salaries, tax and NI contributions Based on market analysis of pay levels in the IFA space and a subsequent Scorpio Partnership estimation of weightings of staff across remuneration levels, total remuneration for the 22,611 headcount is GBP1,173 million for an average of GBP51,894 For the 8,660 client facing staff or IFAs, the total salary cost is GBP608.3 million, orIncome tax and NI contributions an average of GBP70,250, while for the support staff the total cost is GBP565 million, at an average of GBP40,500 282.1 These totals lead to a total tax contribution of GBP506.3 million – broken down at Total tax = GBP282.1 million in income tax, GBP84.3 million in employee national insurance GBP506.3 million and GBP139.9 million in employer national insurance For this segment, based on available research and salary levels, we allocated the headcount across eight remuneration levels (20, 30, 40, 50, 75, 100, 150, 250). On 139.9 the client facing side, for instance, we estimated 5% (of the 8.660 IFAs allocation) are the high earners and able to pull in a total annual remuneration of GBP250,000. 84.3 At the lower end we have allocated 20% each to remuneration of GBP30,000, GBP40,000 and GBP50,000.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 24

This service area is typically their proposition between retail banking and full-scale private banking even if the tag lines provide confusion. While there are differences from firm to firm and client qualification is judged by income level or investable assets we view this market in terms of sizing it as GBP100,000 and above in investable assets This is a growing market as the large banks have realised the value of segmenting their affluent customers into a “benefit-led” proposition for which they can charge a monthly fee for “membership” or “access” to bundled services as well as typically high fees for packaged products such as banking, investments and insurance The growth in the market has been driven by spend on marketing and development of online and remote banking capabilities targeted at their huge retail banking client businesses and other affluent customers seeking a distinct service from standard retail banking.Service overview Market size and participantsThe Mass Affluent private banking market is a generally less The Scorpio Partnership market sizing model and analysissophisticated offering than full-scale private banking, certainly in attributes GBP501 billion in assets under management to the MAterms of specialist services, but it largely covers the same areas. banks.

Making it the third largest of the four segments as measured by AUM Looking at the revenue this segment is able to extract from its AUM base it is 125bps revenue acknowledged that at this level of wealth the providers are generally able to extract a higher basis point rate than in the HNW private banking market. The charging structures for products within this proposition are testament to this point. As such we have assumed average revenue rates on AUM of 125bps and 150bps with the former the most likely for the full segment performance At those levels, based on the stated AUM, this segment is producing annual revenues of GBP6.26 billion or GBP7.5 billion with the former the most likely Commentary on profit and corporate tax Unlike some of the other segments in the market, the mass affluent banks areProfit and corporate tax perhaps experiencing greater growth rates and generally less pressure on revenues and margins as they transfer clients from huge retail base into what is commonly referred to as the premier segment. Typically a monthly charge is also added for this “premium service” adding to the revenue generation potential Given the mix of asset base, product charges, low touch service model and spend on service development, the segment looks to have achieved a higher level of profitability than the generally higher touch segments such as private banking. As such, Scorpio Partnership data analysis would suggest profitability levels of 25% and 35% Taking those profit levels the segment is producing annual profitability of GBP1.56 billion at 25% and GBP2.19 billion at 35% In terms of the corporation tax contribution of this segment on those performance figures, again, due to the complexity of the calculation, we assume both a 15% effective rate and the standard 28% rate. At 125bps in average revenue and 25% profit the segment produces GBP235 million at 15% and GBP329 million.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 26

However, the 20,000 headcount assumes an approximate 50% are client facing with each managing 300 clients with an average asset level of approximately GBP167,000 with the institution. Commentary on salaries, tax and NI contributions Based on Scorpio Partnership analysis of remuneration levels in financial services and our estimation of weightings of staff across remuneration levels, total remuneration for the 20,000 segment headcount is GBP765 million at an average of GBP38,250 The total tax contribution comes to GBP298.5 million – broken down at GBP151.2 million in income tax, GBP61.2 million in employee national insurance and GBP86 million in employer national insuranceIncome tax and NI contributions The calculation of that tax figure is based on an assumption of eight remuneration levels (20, 30, 40, 50, 75, 100, 150 and 250k) and the headcount weighted heavily Total tax = towards the lower remuneration bands. For instance, while 0.5% of all staff are GBP298.5 million allocated to GBP250,000, 30% of all staff are allocated to each of GBP20,000 and GBP30,000.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 27

Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsThe PCIMsIntroduction The private client investment manager segment of wealth managers is, like its HNW private bank counterpart, the traditional lynchpin of investment-related financial services to HNW and affluent market. Within its ranks are names synonymous with traditional stockbroking and asset management for individuals such as Rathbone Brothers, Cazenove Capital Management and Smith & Williamson Different from HNW private banks, however, this segment is more UK oriented in terms of proposition, client base, ownership and heritage. Also, as its name suggests, the focus is generally on investment capabilities over other product and service areas (though some have notably expanded into complimentary lines such as financial planning) Further, within this segment we have included the family office market, single and multi-family office establishments representing the wealth of either a single or multiple families. This market, largely hidden from public view, is large, international and very London-centric. The mandate for individual family offices varies considerably but they are ultimately stewards of very wealthy family or individuals wealth.Service overview Market size and participantsAt the centre of the offering from PCIMs is investment Scorpio Partnership market sizing analysis puts the PCIM segmentmanagement but it is often supplemented by other product and of the wealth manager market at approximately GBP217 billion inservice offerings.

Public distribution: UK Wealth Management Steering CommitteeCoordinated by Owen James, Scorpio Partnership, and LansonsThe PCIMsMarket revenue Commentary on market revenue The Scorpio Partnership wealth distribution model sizes the AUM controlled by this segment at GBP217 billion or 9.9% of the GBP2.19 trillion of assets managed by all wealth managers in the UK, making it the smallest of the four wealth manager sub- segments in the market 100bps revenue – historical benchmark In terms of the segment’s revenue, like HNW private banks, the PCIM segment traditionally looked to take approximately 100bps or 1% of assets per annum. Achieving that performance on today’s AUM base would deliver a revenue for the 85bps revenue – today‘s performance segment of just under GBP2.2 billion Based on the data available for the UK as of today, however, Scorpio Partnership calculates a revenue closer to 85bps´which produces total segment revenue of approximately GBP1.845 billion per annum. Commentary on profit and corporate tax With average revenue of 85bps, the market is managing on average to deliver a profit margin of 20% to 30%, based on Scorpio analysis. Those levels see the PCIM segment delivering total annual profits of GBP369 million and GBP553 millionProfit and corporate tax In terms of the corporate tax then paid by the segment, we again assume two rates based on market performance and the complexity of the corporate tax calculation – 15% and the standard rate of 28%. Using the revenue average of 85bps and a profit margin of 20%, the total corporation tax payment sits at GBP55 million at 15% and GBP103 million at 28% However, in this analysis, the revenue and profitability of the large family office market has not yet been taken into account aside from some of the larger MFO type businesses that will be accounted for within the standard PCIM segment Here, we calculate total profits of GBP354 million at 20% profit margin for a corporation tax contribution of GBP53.1 million at 15% and GBP99 million at 28% The addition of the family office profit and taxation data gives the PCIM segment a total profitability of GBP723 million at 20% profit margin for tax contribution of GBP108 million at 15% and GBP202 million at 28%.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 29

The remaining 69.5%, or 12,978 employees, includes management, administrative, marketing and so on Scorpio Partnership analysis of the available market data reveals a ratio of staff to AUM of 1 staff member to GBP27.5 million in AUM. Applying that ratio to the full segment AUM of GBP217 billion gives 7,900 employees for the commercial PCIM segment Further, Scorpio Partnership modelling puts the number of family office entities active in the UK in one form or another at approximately 2,000.

The accountancy community possibly has a greater role with HNWs than the legal sector due to tax and financial considerations The market is both deep and complex with several thousand firms in operation but dominated at the top by the Big Four global accounting giants who are followed by a long tail of several hundred smaller international, national and local firms.

Scorpio Partnership analysis of the private client units of firms within Accountancy Age’s 50 + 50 report gives an average of 2.5% of all staff operating within a private client department.

They are often the first port of call, along with accountants, in establishing a client’s advisory network and structures, particularly when a client has business interests or family-related wealth issues The legal market in the UK is both deep and complex, consisting of many different firms ranging from the large multinational mega-firms (though most of the Magic Circle and other big firms focus on corporate work to the exclusion of private client), nationwide and regional full service firms, specialist London and regional-only private client focused firms and hundreds if not thousands of sole practitioners The offering to private clients is broad but for HNW clients tends to be wrapped within service offerings entitled private client, private capital, wealth management, entrepreneurs, landed estates and so on.Service overview Market size and participantsThe legal services offered to the HNW private client market are According to The Law Society, as of February 2010, there werelikely to include: 115,475 registered practicing solicitors in the UK and, of those, 85,128 (74%) worked in one of the 10,362 private practice firms- Divorce and family law- Trusts, probate, wills and estates The total revenue produced by these firms, as estimated by The- Tax and planning Law Society, stood at GBP19.4 billion in 2009.

If we then assume a 46% share for the whole market, the income level for all firms with a private client service is GBP8.92 billion Further Scorpio Partnership analysis of the service and staff make-up of those firms with private client services would suggest approximately 5% of staff sit within a private client unit. We therefore apply a 5% proportion to total earnings which, for those firms within the top 200, equates to GBP344 million in annual revenue, while for the full market it means annual revenue for private client services of GBP446 million. Commentary on profit and corporate tax Scorpio Partnership analysis on the financial performance of the top 200 law firmsProfit and corporate tax in the UK with a private client business produces an average profit margin of 22% Therefore, applied to the above revenue figures firms in the top 200 produce a total 28% profit of GBP75.7 million from private client services while for the whole market the figure reaches up to GBP98 million 15% 28% In terms of the tax cost from those performance data, we are again applying the discounted rate of 15% and the standard corporation tax rate of 28% due to the 15% difficult in calculating the real tax contribution based on an analysis of actual payments. Therefore, based on those two levels, within the top 200 the private client legal community is paying GBP11.3 million or GBP21.1 million while for the whole market the contribution is either GBP14.7 million or GBP27.5 million.© Scorpio Partnership 2012 | 38

However, insurance is also a planning tool used principally in relation to tax efficiency which adds another dimension to the relevance of the market In terms of the UK insurance market, while having significant depth in the number of providers (both locally incorporated and able to do business via EU licence) offering insurance services it is in fact dominated by the leading players such as Aviva, Lloyds, Legal & General, Prudential and so on The affluent and HNW client segment is most often not separated out from the retail market in the service offering and thus wealthier clients often buy the same insurance products as any standard individual client. Some firms do, however, segment and specifically target the segment though this element of the market is still small when compared to the overall size of the UK industry.Service overview Market size and participantsThe insurance market for affluent and HNW private clients is similar The UK is the third largest insurance market in the world by annualin many form to the retail market in terms of the offering yet premium, according to Swiss Re, accounting for 7% of allpolicies will tend to be more bespoke depending on the wealth of premiums paid.
