Women Add To Their Lead On Forbes China's New List Of 50 Top Financial Planners

China’s financial advisory business has boomed with the country’s economy in the past several years. To try to help readers sift separate the wheat from the chaff, Forbes China – the licensed Chinese-language edition of Forbes – annually compiles a list of the mainland’s top 50 financial planners. Its 2013 report was published online yesterday.

Women added to their majority on the new list, taking up 31 spots, compared with 28 last year. Their success, according to Forbes China managing editor Bridge Kang, comes in part from a convention in Chinese households that “men earn the money and women manage it.” That in turn helps female professional financial planners and advisers build good relationships among industry executives and customers, Kang said.

Other notable trends this year include a diversification of assets under management to include more international investments and a wider variety of domestic investments, Kang said. Compared with last year, customers are also interested in longer-term wealth planning and services and information ties to the Internet, Kang said.

The average amount of funds managed or controlled by each listee is 650 million yuan, or $108 million.  Fourteen financial institutions are represented in the final list. Guangdong Province led the way among regions with nine listees. The names are presented in alphabetical order and are not a ranking.
