Comprehensive forecasts to 2015.
As of 2011, there are just over 555,000 HNWIs in France, with a combined wealth of around US$2 trillion, accounting for roughly 16% of France’s total wealth.
In 2011, real estate is the largest asset class for HNWIs in France, accounting for 24% of total HNWI assets, followed by fixed income, business interests, equities, cash and alternatives.
Fixed income and cash holdings were the best performing asset classes over the review period, driven by flight to safety during and after the global financial crisis. Against international norms, the share of HNWIs assets held in real estate also increased substantially over the review period, as the French real estate market outperformed global markets."
