Summary
The UK savings and investments market is dominated by deposits, which account for more than half of all liquid assets in the country. However, the growth of the market is fueled mainly by mutual funds, which have performed well even in times of capital market unsteadiness. Mutual funds have consequently attracted a constant flow of new money. Thanks to this, UK liquid assets have been growing since the end of the financial crisis, although a slowdown in recent years has been apparent

Key Findings
- Affluent individuals represent just over a quarter of the UK population but hold 91.7% of the UK's liquid assets.

- UK wealth is concentrated mainly in London and the South East, but other regions should grow faster in the near future.

- 52.2% of UK savings are held in deposits (most of it in instant access accounts), but the solid performance of mutual funds has been attracting inflows to this asset class.

- Despite holding 12.1% of their investment portfolios in commodities, property, and alternatives, the UK's wealthiest individuals show a strong preference towards liquid products.

- Tax efficiency remains the main driver for high net worth (HNW) individuals opting to offshore wealth.
