Fast Market Research recommends "Offshore Centres: 2012 Private Banking Handbook" from WealthInsight, now available


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/10/2012 -- This report reviews major offshore financial centers and assesses each of their wealth management capabilities. "Wealth management" is defined as the provision of banking services to wealthy individuals and their families. It generally involves the management of trusts, inheritance and the allocation of client funds.

Key Highlights

- The global private banking industry has AuM of US$19.3 trillion. Offshore centers account for 42% or US$8.3 trillion on this total.
- Switzerland is the largest worldwide player with AuM of US$2.8 trillion. The bulk (over 80%) of funds held in Switzerland are held for foreign clients.
- Singapore is the fastest growing wealth center in the world with AuM of US$550 billion at the end of 2011 compared to US$50 billion in 2000.
- WealthInsight expects Singapore to overtake Switzerland by 2020 to become the largest global offshore wealth center by AuM. This will be fuelled by a movement of funds away from Switzerland, Luxemburg and the Caribbean and towards Singapore. Furthermore, high growth in HNWIs in APAC countries such as China, India and Indonesia, which are among the largest investors in Singapore, will further boost AuM.
- China's private banking AuM accounts for only 1% of total Chinese HNWI wealth in 2011, which is well below the worldwide average of 29% (worldwide private banking AuM stood at US$19.3 trillion at the end of 2011 compared to worldwide HNWI wealth of US$66 trillion).
