Equities was the largest asset class for the UAE HNWIs in 2013, with 23.5% of total HNWI assets, followed by real estate with 22.8%, business interests with 20.0%, cash and deposits with 19.2%, alternatives with 11.0% and fixed income with 3.5%.

Equities, business interests and real estate recorded the strongest growth during the review period, at 113.2%, 56.4% and 49.4% respectively.

Alternative assets held decreased from 11.6% of total HNWI assets in 2009 to 11.0% in 2013.

WealthInsight expects allocations in commodities to decline over the forecast period reaching 1.7% of total HNWI assets by 2018 as global liquidity tightens due to a forecast near-term drop in Chinese demand for raw materials. This will cause global commodity prices to level out.

The UAE HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$117.7 billion in 2013, representing 46.2% of wealth holdings.
