In 2013, business interests was the largest asset class for Japanese HNWIs, with 30.0% of total HNWI assets, followed by equities with 26.0%, real estate with 19.0%, fixed-income with 10.0%, cash and deposits with 8.0% and alternatives with 7.0%. Equities, alternatives and business interests recorded growth during the review period at respective rates of 53.0%, 46.0% and 36.0%. Alternative assets held by Japanese HNWIs increased during the review period, from 6.3% of the total HNWI assets in 2009 to 7.0% in 2013; HNWI allocations to commodities increased from 1.2% of total assets in 2009 to 1.6% in 2013. Over the forecast period, WealthInsight expects allocations in commodities to decline to 1.3% of total HNWI assets by 2018, as global liquidity tightens due to a forecast near-term drop in demand from China for raw materials. This is expected to cause global commodity prices to flatten out. As of 2013, Japanese HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$3.9 trillion, representing 44.0% of wealth holdings.
