Date: 2015-08-30

“• In 2013, equities was the largest asset class for Canadian HNWIs with 29.5% of total HNWI assets, followed by business interests with 25.4%, real estate with 20.2%, fixed-income with 11.5%, alternatives with 7.7%, and cash and deposits with 5.8%.

• Equities, alternatives and business interests recorded growth at respective review-period rates of 62%, 46% and 44%. 

• Alternative assets held by Canadian HNWIs increased during the review period, going from 7.6% of total HNWI assets in 2009 to 7.7% in 2013. HNWI allocations to commodities increased from 1.4% of total assets in 2009 to 1.8% in 2013. 

• Allocations in commodities are expected to decline over the forecast period, reaching 1.3% of total HNWI assets by 2018, as global liquidity tightens from an expected drop in demand from China for raw materials, which will cause global commodity prices to flatten out.

• In 2013, Canadian HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$764.9 billion, representing 46.8% of wealth holdings.”
