2014-03-28 13:53:03 - Challenges and Opportunities for the Wealth Sector in Italy 2013 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
In 2012, real estate was the largest asset class for HNWIs in Italy with 25.7% of total HNWI assets, followed by equities with 18.2%, fixed-income with 17.3%, cash with 16.9%, business interests with 11.1%, and alternatives with 10.7%.
Alternatives, equities and fixed-income products recorded the strongest growth during the review period.
Alternative assets held by Italian HNWIs increased during the review period, from 8.4% of total HNWI assets in 2008 to 10.7% in 2012; HNWI allocations to commodities increased from 2.1% of total assets in 2008 to 2.7% in 2012.
Over the forecast period, analysts expect allocations in commodities to decline to 2.0% of total HNWI assets by 2017, as global liquidity tightens due to a forecast near-term drop in demand
from China for raw materials that will cause global commodity prices to flatten out.
As of 2012, Italian HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$297 billion, representing 26.7% of wealth holdings.
