Explore the latest wealth management trends and insights at www.worldwealthreport.com, our interactive website for the World Wealth Report. Here you can use dynamic graphs to explore HNWI data and trends across three dimensions: market sizing of the HNWI population and wealth; HNWI asset and geographic allocations; and HNWI behaviour across six regions.
Key findings from this year’s report:
- North America and Asia-Pacific drove HNWI market growth in 2014, with Asia-Pacific regaining the top spot in HNWI population and poised to take the lead in HNWI wealth this coming year.
- Strong gains in these regions were not enough to push growth beyond the moderate level of 7 % globally, which is the second slowest rate in the last five years
- HNWIs have increased their equity holdings over cash as the largest share of their portfolio holdings, and they have a strong demand for credit
- There is significant opportunity for wealth management firms to develop a robust social impact offering to address HNWI needs and capitalise on their demand for increased wealth manager involvement
- The wealth manager role and value proposition is undergoing a major evolution, requiring firms to re-think service models and capabilities. Unmet needs from younger HNWIs and industry challenges such as new entrants, regulation, and rising costs are impacting the wealth manager’s role, requiring that firms take targeted action
