  • Ultra volumes grew by 11% during the review period, while wealth grew by 3.7%. This was higher than the overall HNWI wealth growth of 0.9%. The number of centimillionaires increased by 15%, the largest percentage of any wealth band.
  • Australian UHNWI volumes and wealth were positively influenced by a significant 44% rise in US dollar per capita GDP levels, which rose from US$46,000 in 2007 to US$66,000 in 2011. This in turn was influenced by a significant 19% appreciation of the Australian dollar against the US dollar over the review period.

This will again be led by centimillionaires, who, as a group, will see their numbers grow by 25% over the forecast period.
