Report includes comprehensive forecasts to 2018.
In 2013, real estate was the largest asset class for French HNWIs, with 26.6% of total HNWI assets, followed by equities with 24.7%, business interests with 23.5%, fixed income with 11.4%, alternatives with 7.2%, and cash and deposits with 6.7%.
Alternatives, real estate and business interests recorded growth at respective review-period rates of 46%, 39% and 30%.
Alternative assets held by French HNWIs increased during the review period, from 6.4% of total HNWI assets in 2009 to 7.2% in 2013.
Over the forecast period, allocations in commodities are expected to decline to 1.1% of total HNWI assets by 2018, as global liquidity tightens due to a forecast near-term drop in demand from China for raw materials that will cause global commodity prices to flatten out.
In 2013, French HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$915.2 billion, representing 42.8% of wealth holdings.
