In 2013, equities was the largest asset class for South African HNWIs, with 27.1% of total HNWI assets. This was followed by real estate with 26.3%; business interests with 14.7%; cash and deposits with 12.6%; fixed-income with 11.5%; and alternatives with 7.8%. Alternatives, equities and business interests recorded growth at respective review-period rates of 58%, 58% and 46%. Alternative assets held by South African HNWIs increased during the review period, from 7.1% of the total HNWI assets in 2009 to 7.8% in 2013. Over the forecast period, allocations in commodities are expected to decline to 1.7% of the total HNWI assets by 2018, as global liquidity tightens due to a forecast near-term drop in demand from China for raw materials that will cause global commodity prices to flatten out. In 2013, South African HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$102.4 billion, representing 51.2% of wealth holdings.
