There is no single driver influencing HNW investment preferences. On the contrary, investment choices are determined by an interplay of factors such as risk preference, economic forces, and investor attitudes. As we enter 2016 we expect a reallocation of assets, benefiting alternative investment holdings globally. At the same time, HNW investors are looking for cheap buying opportunities in the equity space.
The most striking trend is the surge in alternatives, which constitute an increasingly large share of the typical portfolio as investors seek diversification from traditional investments. We are also seeing rising demand for exchange-traded funds, which thanks to the diversification they provide and their low costs are rapidly growing in popularity.
Drawn in by capital appreciation opportunities, investors are forecast to channel more wealth into equities. This trend will be particularly pronounced in Europe, where investors are hoping that loose monetary conditions will finally stimulate equity markets.
In the fixed income space, HNW investors are moving out of high-yield bonds, with investor concern mounting as volatility in the junk bond market persists. In many global markets wealth managers will have a tough time promoting bond holdings in general. Their best bet will be bond funds thanks to the diversification benefits they provide.
