The typical profile of the Turkish HNW client is someone who has earned their income in the manufacturing, construction, or hospitality industries. However, while this is the current profile, a growing proportion have inherited their wealth.
In comparison to many other countries at a similar stage of development to Turkey, cash and near-cash products account for the largest asset allocation in the typical HNW Turkish investment portfolio. Greater portfolio diversification is forecast over the next two years.
