Summary
The UK wealth management industry has a long history, and this is reflected in the profile of the country's high net worth (HNW) clients. The majority originate from the financial services industry and are sophisticated enough to deal with their financial affairs. However, to save time they opt for discretionary asset management services, as UK wealth managers maintain their reputation as trusted professionals. Investment portfolios are built around traditional asset classes such as equities and bonds, but alternatives are gaining importance. On the other hand, recent legal changes may cause a shift in demand for certain services, creating opportunities not only for existing competitors but for potential new entrants.

Key Findings
- Entrepreneurs account for 50% of the UK's HNW population, but earned income and inheritance are also importance sources of wealth.

- The majority of HNW expats residing in the UK come from France, Germany, and the US. The expat population is likely to be affected by the government's changes to taxation of the non-domiciled.

- Discretionary management is strongly preferred by UK HNW clients, who hire professional wealth managers in order to save time. Demand for execution-only platforms is very limited.

- Equities and bonds are major components of UK HNW investors' well-diversified portfolios. No significant changes to asset management strategies are forecast, although wealth managers should prepare their clients' portfolios for shifts in the Bank of England's monetary policy.
