Summary
The number of affluent investors in Hong Kong grew to 2.4 million in 2015, achieving a lower rate of growth than its long-term average since the financial crisis rocked the market in 2008. Yet Hong Kong remains an attractive market. 40% of the adult population is considered affluent, comparable to markets in the developed West, while growth rates still resemble those found in the East. Growth going forward will be more modest for both affluent investor numbers and assets. But with affluent assets still forecast to achieve 7.2% annual growth over the years to 2019 - due to more residents moving into this class and a general appreciation of capital - Hong Kong retains much of its allure as a source of new clients for wealth managers.

Key Findings
- The total number of affluent investors in Hong Kong is forecast to grow to 3.3 million by 2019.

- Retail savings and investments are dominated by deposits, and despite the low returns on offer this is not expected to change as investors will remain cautious.

- High net worth (HNW) investors are equally cautious in their onshore liquid investment portfolio allocations, with a modest 6.3% held in alternatives, commodities, and property.

- Strong global links make Hong Kong HNW investors among the most ready to offshore, with 40% of their wealth booked offshore.
