LONDON, May 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Summary
The US is the largest wealth market in the world, and home to a diverse and sizable HNW segment. As the population continues to age, building ties with younger generations will ensure successful transfers of wealth to beneficiaries. Less than 25% of client investment portfolios are allocated into bond investments, and with less demand expected in the future more pressure is placed on better returns from alternative investments.
- Almost half of US HNW individuals have gained wealth either as a family business owner or as a first-generation entrepreneur. Greater demand for personalized wealth management services and reaching international markets is expected.
- Gaining access to sophisticated investment products is the number one reason US HNW clients opt to have their wealth professionally managed, while 23.1% believe their portfolio is too complex to manage themselves.
- While more than twice as many HNW clients prefer discretionary mandates over advisory asset management, the latter will display the greatest increase in demand.
- Equities are the main constituent of a US HNW investment portfolio. As expected, alternative investments are gaining importance and make up 26% of an average HNW portfolio.
- Among planning services, financial planning shows the strongest demand. But wealth managers will do well to provide a complete suite of tax planning services.
