Wealth in Canada: Sizing the Market Opportunity; Analyzing the wealth market in the Great White North

Published: Jul 23, 2016 | Pages: 35 | Publisher: Verdict Financial | Industry: Financial Services | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

While the commodities market bust has not forced the country to contract, it did dent growth in retail savings and investment in 2015. 2016 should see a resurgence in Canadians' asset appreciation, but a tepid recovery in oil and gas along with substantial household debt loads will see slower growth over the rest of the forecast period. Key Findings
-The affluent population in Canada will consistently expand over the forecast period, with growth strongest among the $10m+ category. -Over half of onshore liquid retail savings and investments is in the hands of the mass affluent and thus exposed to credit risk, as these investors have often taken on considerable mortgage debt. -After dragging down growth in retail wealth in 2015, equity assets will boost growth in 2016 along with mutual funds. -While Canadians do not offshore substantial portions of their wealth, investing in China is a strong attraction - unsurprising given Canada's strong links to the country.
