In 2013, business interests made up the largest asset class for US HNWIs, accounting for 29.9% of the total HNWI assets, followed by equities with 28.8%, real estate with 16.8%, fixed-income with 10.5%, cash and deposits with 8.3%, and alternatives with 5.8%.
Equities, business interests and alternatives recorded growth at respective review-period rates of 86.2%, 38.5% and 32.7%.
Alternative assets held by US HNWIs decreased during the review period from 6.1% of the total HNWI assets in 2009 to 5.8% in 2013. HNWI allocations to commodities increased from 1.2% of the total assets in 2009 to 1.4% in 2013.
Allocations in commodities are expected to decline over the forecast period, reaching 1.1% of the total HNWI assets by 2018, as global liquidity tightens from an expected drop in demand from China for raw materials, which will cause global commodity prices to flatten.
In 2013, US HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$10.0 trillion, representing 47.4% of the total wealth holdings.
