Report includes comprehensive forecasts to 2019.
Real estate was the largest asset class for Malaysian HNWIs in 2014, accounting for 27.3% of total HNWI assets. This was followed by equities with 23.7%, business interests with 20%, cash and deposits with 12.7%, fixed-income with 11% and alternatives with 5.3%.
Real estate, business interests and alternatives recorded growth during the review period, at respective rates of 52.9%, 46.7% and 39%.
Alternative assets held by Malaysian HNWIs increased during the review period, going from 5.2% of total HNWI assets in 2010 to 5.3% in 2014. HNWI allocations to commodities remained the same at 1.8% of total assets over the same period.
WealthInsight expects allocations in commodities to decline over the forecast period to reach 1.5% of total HNWI assets by 2019, as global liquidity tightens due to a forecast near-term drop in demand for raw materials from China. This is expected to cause global commodity prices to flatten out.
Malaysian HNWI liquid assets valued USD 76 billion as of 2014, representing 47.4% of total wealth holdings.
