Key findings from WWR 2017

  • HNWI wealth accelerated globally: Asia-Pacific, North America, and Europe contributed equally in pushing HNWI population and wealth up by 7.5% and 8.2% in 2016. While Asia-Pacific remains the world’s largest-HNWI market, its growth slowed slightly.
  • BigTechs are casting a long shadow in wealth management as 56.2% of HNWIs globally say they would be open to working with them.
  • HNWIs benefitted from robust returns (global average of 24.3%) on investment portfolios overseen by their wealth managers, earning substantial gains over lower-cost, passive index funds. Trust and confidence in all aspects of the wealth management industry increased.
  • Hybrid-advice solutions in wealth management are making an impression on HNWIs, becoming as valued as wealth manager-led offerings and even more so in some areas. The youngest and wealthiest HNWIs, along with those in Asia-Pacific (excl. Japan) and Europe, exhibited the greatest preference for hybrid advice.
