Thanks to a predicted drop in economic productivity, the remarkable wealth growth rates of the past few years will not be repeated over the forecast period. Nevertheless, strong predicted retail investments growth led by strong equity performance will continue to see the market grow at a faster rate than in the wider region.
Thanks to strong stock market performance, 2014 was a strong year for Chinas retail investment market, which expanded by 14.7%. Albeit to a lesser degree, a bullish equity market and a reallocation of assets (which will benefit equities as well as wealth management products) will sustain strong retail investment market growth going forward.
Chinese HNW investors allocate a noteworthy proportion of their investible assets into non-traditional investments, mostly in direct property. In addition, alternative investments are set to play an increasingly important role in HNW portfolios, and wealth managers need to be ready to meet this demand.
