Wealth in Russia: HNW Investors 2016; Understanding HNW investors and wealth management strategies
The Russian wealth market has been developing over several years. However, the recent political and economic instability in the country have affected HNW investors’ portfolios and demand for wealth managers’ services. Russian millionaires have to adapt to changing conditions, yet they continue to have high expectations when it comes to financial advice. Wealth managers who succeed in guiding clients through uncertain times will earn their trust, which in turn will lead to long-term fruitful relationships. The provision of well-diversified investment strategies and sophisticated wealth structuring services is a must.
The construction and real estate industries are the major sources of Russian HNW wealth. The oil and gas sector has been losing its significance.
Expats account for a fraction of Russian millionaires and will continue to decline.
Bonds account for 40% of the average HNW investor’s portfolio. Russian investors show strong interest in corporate debt, which has offered a regular flow of high interest payments.
Strongly performing hedge funds have been attracting assets, driving the share of alternatives in HNW portfolios above the regional average. Further increases in hedge fund and private equity allocations are likely.
The depreciation of the Russian ruble hit the foreign property investments of wealthy Russians, affecting their attitudes towards real estate and driving demand for advice in this field.
The provision of financial planning and wealth structuring advice is essential to wealth managers’ propositions. This includes tax and inheritance planning advice.
