Equities recorded growth at a rate of 66.5%, real estate at 28.4%, business interests at 27.7%, and alternatives and fixed income at 20.2% during the review period.
Alternative assets held by HNWIs in the US decreased during the review period, going from 6% of total HNWI assets in 2010 to 5.5% in 2014. HNWI allocations to commodities also decreased from 1.5% to 1.3% of total assets over the same period.
WealthInsight expects allocations in commodities to decline over the forecast period, to reach 1% 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.
