Date: 2015-08-24

“• In 2014, real estate was the largest asset class for Saudi Arabian HNWIs with 30.9% of total HNWI assets. It was followed by business interests with 22.3%, equities with 19.1%, cash and deposits with 13.5%, alternatives with 11.9%, and fixed-income with 2.2%.

• Equities, real estate and business interest grew during the review period, at respective rates of 33.9%, 49.3% and 28.8%.

• Alternative assets held by Saudi Arabian HNWIs decreased during the review period, from 12.8% of total HNWI assets in 2010 to 11.9% in 2014; HNWI allocations to commodities also decreased, from 3.3% of total assets in 2010 to 2.9% in 2014. 

• Over the forecast period, WealthInsight expects allocations in commodities to fall further to 2.4% of total HNWI assets by 2019, as global liquidity tightens due to a forecast near-term drop in demand from China for raw materials. This is expected to cause global commodity prices to flatten out.

• As of 2014, Saudi Arabian HNWI liquid assets valued US$108.8 billion, representing 34.9% of total wealth holdings.”
