Summary Singapore is one of the world's pre-eminent offshore investment centers, with 81% of the wealth invested in funds sourced from non-residents. However, the onshore market is a major source of assets under management (AUM) in its own right, with 1.0 million affluent individuals despite the city state's small population. As a regional trading hub Singapore's growth rates are closely tied to the health of regional powerhouses such as China, India, and Indonesia; however, even with growth slowing in some of these economies, Singapore's wealth market will continue to post rates that are the envy of the developed world.
Key Findings - HNW individuals totaled 29,600 in 2015, a tiny proportion of the overall population and well below the levels seen in the US or Switzerland.
- HNW liquid assets are expected to grow by roughly 7.5% a year between 2015 and 2019.
- Bonds will be the fastest-growing asset class, but more due to greater availability than client demand.
- While Singapore attracts significant offshore investment, residents are also keen to invest abroad - 34% of AUM is invested offshore
