Equities Were the Largest Asset Class for Russian HNWIs In 2014

Date: 2015-08-26

“• In 2014, equities were the largest asset class for Russian HNWIs, with 29.1% of total HNWI assets. This was followed by real estate with 20.2%, business interests with 19.7%, fixed-income with 17.5%, alternatives with 7.6% and cash and deposits with 5.9%.

• Equities, alternatives and real estate recorded growth during the review period, at respective rates of 39.3%, 39.6% and 2.5%.

• Alternative assets held by Russian HNWIs increased during the review period, going from 6.7% of total HNWI assets in 2010 to 7.6% in 2014. HNWI allocations to commodities increased from 1.9% to 2.0% of total assets over the same period. 

• WealthInsight expects allocations in commodities to decline over the forecast period, to reach back to 1.4% of total HNWI assets by 2019, as global liquidity tightens due to a forecast near-term drop in demand for raw materials from China. This is expected to cause global commodity prices to flatten out.

• Russian HNWI liquid assets valued US$617.9 billion as of 2014, representing 52.5% of total wealth holdings.”
