New Report Available: Wealth in Australia: HNW Investors

Fast Market Research recommends "Wealth in Australia: HNW Investors" from Verdict Retail, now available

[ClickPress, Tue May 31 2016] Australia is known for its multicultural landscape, which is also reflected in the country's HNW market. HNW investors in Australia stem from a range of different backgrounds and portray distinctive demand patterns. However, a strong affinity for equity investments and high expectations when it comes to financial advice and other support services (such as pension and tax advice) are common characteristics.

Key Findings

* The majority of HNW individuals in Australia have accumulated their wealth through earned income, but first-generation entrepreneurs and family businesses represent the largest sources of wealth.
* While representing a slightly lower proportion than in the wider region, HNW expats constitute an attractive target segment in Australia, accounting for 8.3% of Australian HNW individuals (or approximately 11,800 individuals).
* Australian HNW investors allocate almost three times as much wealth into equities compared to their peers in Asia Pacific.
* HNW individuals show a strong and rising interest in advisory asset management, while demand for execution-only services is limited.
* Australian HNW investors show strong and rising demand for tax, pension, and financial planning as well as property advice, making a multi-service strategy critical in Australia.
