In 2013, Asia-Pacific accounted for 29.0% of the foreign assets of Swiss HNWIs. It was followed by Europe with 25.8%, North America with 24.8%, Central and Southern America with 11.1%, the Middle East with 6.6% and Africa with 2.8%. Swiss HNWI allocations to Europe decreased sharply compared with other regions during the review period, from 40.9% in 2009 to 25.8% in 2013. North America and Asia-Pacific were the emerging regions in terms of global investments. Over the forecast period, WealthInsight expects HNWIs to increase their levels of investment in Europe to 44.1% of foreign HNWI assets by 2018, with investments increasing due to confidence in the European economy after the financial crisis.
