Key Highlights
In 2013, equities was the largest asset class for Canadian HNWIs with 29.5% of total HNWI assets, followed by business interests with 25.4%, real estate with 20.2%, fixed-income with 11.5%, alternatives with 7.7%, and cash and deposits with 5.8%. Equities, alternatives and business interests recorded growth at respective review-period rates of 62%, 46% and 44%. Alternative assets held by Canadian HNWIs increased during the review period, going from 7.6% of total HNWI assets in 2009 to 7.7% in 2013. HNWI allocations to commodities increased from 1.4% of total assets in 2009 to 1.8% in 2013. Allocations in commodities are expected to decline over the forecast period, reaching 1.3% of total HNWI assets by 2018, as global liquidity tightens from an expected drop in demand from China for raw materials, which will cause global commodity prices to flatten out. In 2013, Canadian HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$764.9 billion, representing 46.8% of wealth holdings.
