- Real estate is the largest asset class for HNWIs in Hong Kong, which accounts for 31% of total HNWI assets, followed by business interests, which accounts for 22% of assets.
- Real estate and alternatives were the best performing asset classes over the review period (2007-2011), driven by strong local property markets, an influx of investors from mainland China and the rise in commodity prices.
- Over the forecast period, WealthInsight expects a movement away from property assets and towards equities. Alternative allocations are also projected to increase substantially, as investors increase hedge fund, private equity and, in particular, holdings of collectables. Cash holdings will decline slightly while fixed income allocations will be boosted by the emergence of the dim sum market.
