Australia is known for its multicultural landscape, which is also reflected in the country’s HNW market. HNW investors in Australia stem from a range of different backgrounds and portray distinctive demand patterns. However, a strong affinity for equity investments and high expectations when it comes to financial advice and other support services (such as pension and tax advice) are common characteristics.

Key Findings

  • The majority of HNW individuals in Australia have accumulated their wealth through earned income, but first-generation entrepreneurs and family businesses represent the largest sources of wealth.
  • While representing a slightly lower proportion than in the wider region, HNW expats constitute an attractive target segment in Australia, accounting for 8.3% of Australian HNW individuals (or approximately 11,800 individuals).
  • Australian HNW investors allocate almost three times as much wealth into equities compared to their peers in Asia Pacific.
  • HNW individuals show a strong and rising interest in advisory asset management, while demand for execution-only services is limited.
  • Australian HNW investors show strong and rising demand for tax, pension, and financial planning as well as property advice, making a multi-service strategy critical in Australia.
