Hi, readers. I’ll keep things short this week, since we’re reaching peak vacation season and finance news is probably not top of mind right now. This week we had a really fun wealth-management story, in which we asked a handful of top wealth advisers about the most out-there requests they’ve gotten from their rich clients. Answers ranged from assisting in a personal-butler search to difficult situations like figuring out how to manage risks after an accident. Why does this matter? The pool of high- and ultra-high-net-worth assets in the US has been pegged at more than $20 trillion. But competition is fierce, so advisers have to go above and beyond to fulfill their clients’ requests. If you aren’t yet a subscriber to Wall Street Insider, you can sign up here. To that end, our new wealth-management reporter, Rebecca Ungarino, had a story this week about how UBS has formed a group to help its wealth advisers provide a “family office”-like experience for billionaire families. It comes as the bank works to make good on raking in $70 billion in new US assets over three years. We’ll be writing a lot more about the wealth-management industry going forward, so please reach out if you have any tips we should be digging into. Have a great weekend!

Now they’re keeping some around to help spend all the money they’ve raised. Private-equity firms often send associates on their way after two or three years. But with firms raising record capital and megafunds north of $10 billion becoming more common, top associates are being asked to stick around to help put that money to use, industry recruiters say. That’s a departure from what typically happens after associates enter into two- to three-year programs at PE firms.
