HNWI Asset Allocation in the UAE 2014 - New Market Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Feb 10 2015

* This report is the result of WealthInsight's extensive research covering the high net worth individual (HNWI) population and wealth management market in the UAE.
* The report focuses on HNWI performance between the end of 2008 (the peak before the global financial crisis) and the end of 2013. This enables us to determine how well the country's HNWIs have performed through the crisis.

Report Highlights

* Equities was the largest asset class for the UAE HNWIs in 2013, with 23.5% of total HNWI assets, followed by real estate with 22.8%, business interests with 20.0%, cash and deposits with 19.2%, alternatives with 11.0% and fixed income with 3.5%.
* Equities, business interests and real estate recorded the strongest growth during the review period, at 113.2%, 56.4% and 49.4% respectively.
* Alternative assets held decreased from 11.6% of total HNWI assets in 2009 to 11.0% in 2013.
* WealthInsight expects allocations in commodities to decline over the forecast period - reaching 1.7% of total HNWI assets by 2018 - as global liquidity tightens due to a forecast near-term drop in Chinese demand for raw materials. This will cause global commodity prices to level out.
* The UAE HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$117.7 billion in 2013, representing 46.2% of wealth holdings.
