Key findings

  • One year after recording the highest HNWI population, Asia-Pacific now leads the world as the region with the most HNWI wealth. Asian-Pacific HNWI wealth grew 9.9 percent in 2015 to US$17.4 trillion, growing 5.8 times the 1.7 percent Rest of the World (RoW) growth rate. HNWI population grew by 9.4 percent to exceed $5 million, growing 3.5 times the RoW growth rate of 2.7 percent.
  • Although the Asia-Pacific HNWI trust is growing in the wealth management industry, the majority of HNWI assets are not under management by wealth management firms.
  • Social impact investing also presents an opportunity for firms to retain and attract more HNWI assets, as well over a third (37.3 percent) of the portfolios of Asian-Pacific (excl. Japan) HNWIs are geared toward social improvement, compared to only 31.6 percent for those globally.
  • Digital capabilities are more important to Asia-Pacific HNWIs than anywhere else in the globe, but digital maturity currently lags. Increasing digital maturity is necessary to retain and attract HNW clients, as well as to prevent wealth manager attrition.
