Key Highlights

  • In 2013, real estate was the largest asset class for HNWIs in Switzerland, with 24.3% of total HNWI assets, followed by equities with 17.5%, business interests with 17.5%, cash and deposits with 15.5%, fixed-income with 15.5%, and alternatives with 9.7%.
  • Cash, alternatives and real estate recorded growth during the review period at 266.0%, 119.0% and 48.0% respectively. 
  • Alternative assets held by Swiss HNWIs increased during the review period from 5.8% of total HNWI assets in 2009 to 9.7% in 2013; HNWI allocations to commodities increased from 1% of total assets in 2009 to 2.6% in 2013. 
  • Over the forecast period, WealthInsight expects allocations in commodities to decline to 2.1% of total HNWI assets by 2018, as global liquidity tightens due to a forecast near-term drop in demand from China for raw materials that will cause global commodity prices to flatten out.
  • As of 2013, Swiss HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$795.2 billion, representing 48.5% of wealth holdings.
