Wealth in Switzerland: HNW Investors 2017

Summary

Inheritors form the largest segment among Swiss HNW individuals, who have generated their wealth mainly through property and real estate, in addition to professional services. Expats in Switzerland account for 8.4% of the HNW population, who along with the rest of the country’s HNW population are keen to invest a proportion of their wealth locally. Looking ahead, greater demand for wealth management services such as inheritance and financial planning is expected.

- 33.8% of Swiss HNW individuals have accumulated their wealth through inheritance. At the same time, half of HNW investors are family business owners or first-generation entrepreneurs.
- There is a notable expat population living in Switzerland, who invests a proportion of wealth in their country of residence mainly to avoid foreign exchange fees. 35.8% of wealth managers also believe HNW investors are unsure of whether they will return to their country of origin.
- Swiss HNW investors prefer their wealth to be managed professionally, as 92.4% of total HNW investments are placed with a professional. The greatest proportion is held in discretionary mandates.
- Asset allocation is heavily weighted towards equities and bonds, which together account for 69.6% of the typical Swiss HNW portfolio. Wealth managers anticipate strong growth for equity investments.
- Inheritance and pension planning services show the strongest demand, but wealth managers expect financial planning services to experience the greatest increase in demand in the next two years.

Critical Success factors:
- Focus on discretionary offerings – Discretionary mandates are forecast to remain the preferred choice among Swiss investors. Wealth managers should ensure their offering is comprehensive and appeals to HNW residents.
- Inheritance planning services are key – Swiss HNW investors show strong demand across wealth management services. As there is a notable segment of the HNW population that sources their wealth from inheritance, wealth managers will do well to offer services that resonate with this segment.
- Expand equity and bond allocations – We forecast a strong increase in demand for equities and bonds, so wealth managers should ensure these remain at the forefront of Swiss HNW portfolios.

UK Insurance Aggregators 2017 Summary Aggregators remain a prominent route to market for private motor cover, the insurance product primarily established in the aggregator space, and to a lesser extent home insurance, travel insurance, pet insurance, and SME cover in turn.
