NEW YORK, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Wealth in Singapore: HNW Investors 2017

Summary

Singapore’s HNW population remains dominated by business owners and those who accumulated their wealth through earned income. HNW individuals invest around half of managed wealth with their main wealth manager, and the majority of wealth is held via discretionary mandates. Current investment demand is particularly pronounced for equities and corporate bonds; however, the latter are forecast to fall out of favor as investors are looking for new means of diversification in the alternative investment universe. Led by pension and financial planning, overall demand for planning services is moderate. However, going forward we expect increased demand for tax planning.

Singaporean HNW individuals have amassed their wealth mainly through earned income. However, taken together those who earned their wealth either through first-generation entrepreneurship or family business ownership constitute the largest segment. The most prominent industries from which HNW individuals have amassed wealth are property and financial services. Dedicated expat services are a necessity because Singapore’s HNW expat population represents a larger opportunity compared to the rest of Asia Pacific. Also important is that government incentives still make Singapore an enticing hub for wealthy expatriate investors.

Key Findings include in this report –
– Expats constitute half of Singapore’s HNW population, hence constituting a lucrative target market.
– Accelerated demand for discretionary mandates will be the pre-eminent trend over the coming year.
– The average Singaporean HNW portfolio is biased towards equity and bond investments, with demand for the latter expected to fall as we are seeing a move into risk assets.
– An above-average proportion of Singaporean HNW wealth is allocated to alternative investments – the majority of which is held in hedge funds. Alternatives should gain further traction.
– Singaporean HNW investors currently show the strongest demand for financial planning, but demand for tax advice is forecast to experience the strongest rise in demand over the coming two years.

Critical success factors
– Capitalize on expats: The Singaporean expat market is large and diverse enough to warrant dedicated country teams that increasingly serve Asian-origin clients rather than Europeans or Americans.
– Develop your discretionary asset management proposition: Singaporean wealth managers need to ensure that saving time and effort (while still being attentive and trustworthy) is a core part of any discretionary service proposition.
– Offer tax advice: The ever-increasing complexity of the global tax landscape is driving demand for tax advice globally and Singapore is no exception, given the highly international nature of the city-state’s HNW community, which forces investors to navigate through different jurisdictions’ tax systems.
