Report Summary

A plunge in stock market performance and weak economic data took a toll on Taiwanese wealth generation in 2015. However, a robust equity market recovery in 2016 has boosted the retail savings and investment market, with gains of almost 10% on the Taiwan Futures Exchange in the first nine months of 2016. Between 2016 and 2020, Taiwan’s retail investment market is forecast to record a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9%.

Inquire Before Buying:

Report Scope

- Affluent individuals account for 25.9% of the population, with HNW individuals constituting just 0.45% of the total adult population. Affluent individuals hold 78% of the total wealth, or $987.2bn, of which the HNW share is around 29.8%.
- Over the forecast period, all asset classes are set to exceed economic growth. However, deposits are likely to decline as a proportion of savings, while investment holdings and equity mutual funds have recovered from a weak 2015 to see strong growth. Direct equity holdings will see the most growth over the next five years, recording a CAGR of 7.5%.

Inquire For Discount:

- Constituting only 0.9% and 2.6% respectively, bonds and mutual funds are strongly underrepresented in retail investors’ portfolios, and despite above market growth neither are likely to become important parts of portfolios anytime soon.
- HNW individuals in Taiwan allocate around 15% of their investible assets outside of traditional investments, mostly in property and alternatives. In 2016, life insurance also became a significant facet of investor portfolios, accounting for around 25%. Of alternative investments, property remains the most popular asset class, with new regulations pushing real estate investment trusts into the spotlight.
