This report provides the latest asset allocations of South African HNWIs across 13 asset classes. The report also includes projections of the volume, wealth and asset allocation of South African HNWIs to 2016 and a comprehensive and robust background of the local economy, including, uniquely, detailed analysis of economic and political risks to HNWI wealth creation.
â¢ South Africa has the highest number of HNWIs in Africa. As of 2011, there were over 44,700 HNWIs in South Africa, with a combined wealth of US$188 billion, accounting for roughly 27% of South Africa´s total individual wealth (US$740 billion).
â¢ Business interests recorded the strongest growth over the review period, driven by new business formation, particularly in the BEE arena.
â¢ Alternative allocations
were boosted by a strong gold and general commodities market â the commodity holdings of South African HNWIs increased from 1.6% of total assets in 2007 to 2.4% in 2011.
â¢ Over the forecast period, WealthInsight expects a movement away from real estate, cash and fixed-income investments and towards equities and business interests.
â¢ In 2011, HNWIs in South Africa held 17.4% (US$33 billion) of their wealth outside of South Africa. This is below the global average of approximately 30%.
â¢ The share of foreign assets that South Africa´s HNWIs allocate to the rest of Africa increased substantially from 16% in 2007 to 23.4% in 2011. A large portion of new investment went into Mozambique, which is an emerging business location for South Africans. HNWI investment into Ghana, Uganda, Nigeria and Kenya also increased substantially.
