Private wealth management, also called private banking, is a specialized branch of the investment community that provides one-stop shopping for products and services needed by the wealthy—typically defined as those who have liquid assets of more than $1 million.

Private wealth management is a personally rewarding and potentially very lucrative career where top performers can make more than $3 million annually.
