IAWMC is a niche consulting firm providing services to wealth managers, private banks, family offices, asset managers, software vendors and service providers such as third party administration firms. We differentiate ourselves from our peers and competitors by providing pragmatic and cost effective consulting services to our clients by utilising our broad and deep knowledge of the financial services industry in which we operate.
The firm was formed in 2012 by its founding Director Steve Dyson who is an experienced industry practitioner. From time-to-time we use associates for client assignments but always under the close supervision of our founding Directors. Our associates are people who we know well and have worked with in the past and never have less than 10 years relevant experience. We are very proud of our reputation for the provision of professional consulting services.
We have worked with a wide variety of clients and have formed strong relationships with them. Due to our extensive knowledge of the market and large contact network we have undertaken a great deal of work for firms looking to enter the wealth management market and the UK market, this includes software vendors, start-up wealth managers, robo advisers and wealth management service providers. Our services to these clients have been diverse and have included: functional gap analysis; market entry strategy; speaking at their events and helping them to get the appropriate decision makers to their event; system and service provider selection; and recruitment as their businesses grow.
We strongly believe that IAWMC brings a unique insight into industry trends and challenges. This is based on the experiences of its consultants and associates who have held senior roles within wealth management, investment management, investment operations, software vendors and service providers.
IAWMC has a market neutral stance. Although the Company can and does work closely with other organisations that operate in the financial services industry, we do not enter into any financial or commercial arrangements that would compromise our ability to offer impartial, objective advice to our clients.
