One of the top 10 wealth markets in the world, the French wealth market experienced reasonable growth in 2014. Affluent individuals currently account for 13.8% of the adult population, with more growth anticipated in the HNW segment over the coming years.
France's retail savings and investments market performed extremely well in 2012 but growth has since cooled, largely thanks to meagre economic growth hovering around 0.3%. Looking forward, growth is anticipated across all asset classes (with the exception of bonds).
French HNW individuals hold on average 7% of their portfolios offshore, with the majority of this booked in other European markets, notably Switzerland and Luxembourg. In most cases tax is the main driver for offshore holdings, with political stability another key factor.
