Real Estate was the Largest Asset Class for Italian HNWIs In 2014

Date: 2015-08-27

“• In 2014, real estate was the largest asset class for Italian HNWIs, with 25.6% of total HNWI assets, followed by equities with 17.8%, fixed-income with 16.3%, cash and deposits with 15.7%, business interests with 14.3% and alternatives with 10.3%.

• Equities, business interests and alternatives recorded review-period growth of 51.0%, 22.6% and 13.6% respectively. 

• Alternative assets held by Italian HNWIs decreased during the review period, from 10.4% of total HNWI assets in 2010 to 10.3% in 2014; HNWI allocations to commodities increased from 1.4% to 1.5% of total assets over this period. 

• WealthInsight expects allocations in commodities to decline over the forecast period, reaching 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 will cause global commodity prices to flatten out.

• Italian HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$552.2 billion as of 2014, representing 49.8% of wealth holdings.”
