Fixed income products recorded the strongest growth over the review period, driven by a movement into safer assets during the financial crisis. As of 2012, HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$263 billion, representing 17.2% of the wealth holdings of Canadian HNWIs. WealthInsight's research showed that in 2012, 23% of Canadian HNWIs had second homes abroad. At the end of 2012, Canadian HNWIs held 26% (US$372 billion) of their wealth outside their home country, which is in line with the worldwide norm of between 20% and 30%.
