“• In 2013, equities was the largest asset class for German HNWIs, with 27.7% of total HNWI assets, followed by business interests with 25.4%, real estate with 22.1%, fixed-income with 10.2%, alternatives with 9.1%, and cash and deposits with 5.5%.

• Equities, alternatives and business interests recorded growth at respective review-period rates of 81%, 47% and 40%. 

• Alternative assets held by German HNWIs remained level during the review period, from 7.5% of total HNWI assets in 2009 to 9.1% in 2013. HNWI allocations to commodities increased from 2.7% of total assets in 2009 to 3.2% in 2013. 

• Over the forecast period, allocations in commodities are expected to decline to 2.5% of total HNWI assets by 2018, as global liquidity tightens due to a forecast near-term drop in demand from China for raw materials that will cause global commodity prices to flatten out.

• In 2013, German HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$1.82 trillion, representing 43.4% of wealth holdings.”
