UAE HNWI Liquid Assets Valued US$120.4 Billion in 2014

Date: 2015-08-24

“• In 2014, real estate was the largest asset class for UAE HNWIs, with 23.9% of total HNWI assets. This was followed by equity with 23.7%, business interests with 20.0%, cash with 18.6%, alternatives with 10.5% and fixed-income with 3.4%.

• Real estate and equities recorded growth during the review period, at respective rates of 23.9% and 23.7%.

• The proportion of alternative assets held by UAE HNWIs decreased during the review period from 11.5% in 2010 to 10.5% in 2014. HNWI allocations to commodities decreased from 2.8% to 2.4% over the same period. 

• WealthInsight expects allocations in commodities to decline over the forecast period to reach 1.9% 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.

• UAE HNWI liquid assets valued US$120.4 billion in 2014, representing 45.7% of total wealth holdings.”
