Chile is a lucrative opportunity for wealth managers seeking to participate in the continent's 21st century growth story. Growth in the liquid assets held by the affluent Chilean population steadily declined from 7% in 2011 to 4% in 2012, rising again to 8% in 2013.
Chiles retail investments market continued to grow in 2012. In the past, the market has been driven by strong growth in fixed income investments and to a lesser extent deposits. In the next five years mutual funds will begin to play a larger role in the Chilean growth story as the local financial market continues to develop.
Chilean HNW individuals hold 22% of their investment portfolios in illiquid assets such as private equity and direct property investments. Offshore investment is high among Chilean HNW individuals, with on average only 28% of their portfolios held overseas, mostly booked in the US. Tax efficiency is the major driver of offshore investment.
