Key Highlights

  • There are just over 274,000 HNWIs in Australia, with an average wealth of US$3.1 million per person and a combined wealth of US$845 billion.
  • HNWI wealth accounts for roughly 17% of Australias total wealth. This percentage is low compared to the worldwide norm of over 30% which is indicative of the relatively even wealth distribution within Australia.
  • The number of Australias HNWIs increased by 8.9% (2.2% pa) over the review period (2007-2011), while total wealth grew by 0.9% (0.2% pa). 
  • Real estate is the largest asset class for HNWIs in Australia (29% of total HNWI assets), followed by business interests (23%), equities (17%), cash (12%), fixed income (11%) and alternatives (7.7%). Allocations to real estate and alternative assets are significantly higher in Australia than global and regional norms.
  • Real estate, fixed income and cash holdings were the best performing segments over the review period (2007-2011), driven by the rise in the local property market and high local interest rates during the second half of the review period.
