(Before It's News)

The Hong Kong private wealth market is an attractive mix of East and West. Its long-established nature makes it larger and more diversified than is common in the rest of Asia Pacific. Local HNW investors have mainly sourced their wealth through a mixture of entrepreneurship and earned income. An expectation of better returns through advisors is driving uptake of professional advice, but investors are reluctant to relinquish control completely, preferring advisory mandates. The average portfolio is heavily invested into equities, and this is not expected to change. However, we forecast rising demand for alternative products, which currently only constitute a minor proportion of the typical HNW portfolio. HNW clients also show moderate to strong demand for financial and pension planning, while estate planning continues to be a service that is sold rather than bought.

Key Findings
-?Family business owners and first-generation entrepreneurs together form the largest HNW client segment in Hong Kong. Wealth managers need to be prepared for clients with irregular incomes, heavy exposure to single industries, and finances entwined with their business.

-?Expats constitute a sizable proportion of the local HNW market and should prove to be a lucrative target segment.

-?Advisory mandates continue to dominate in Hong Kong. However, HNW investors prefer to manage simple investments themselves.

-?The average portfolio is heavily exposed to equities, while only the bare minimum is held in cash and near-cash products to ensure liquidity.

-?Already moderate to strong demand for margin lending is forecast to increase even further, and wealth managers should ensure that clients understand the risks associated with a leveraged investment strategy.
