Wealth in the Netherlands: HNW Investors

Published: Apr 27, 2016 | Pages: 40 | Publisher: Verdict Financial | Industry: Financial Services | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Summary

Typically Dutch HNW individuals come from an entrepreneurial background or are family business owners, while the leading generators of wealth are the IT and financial services industries. While younger than the regional average, most Dutch HNW individuals are over 50, with almost a quarter over 65. Expats form a small proportion of the HNW population (4.1%), with the UK accounting for the largest share. The typical Dutch HNW individual invests heavily into equities, which make up nearly half of the typical HNW portfolio, while bonds constitute another third. Allocations into equities, property, and cash are expected to increase, demand for alternatives will remain unchanged, while demand for bonds and commodities is set to decrease amid low yields and commodity prices.

Key Findings

- Compared to the wider region, expats do not form a large proportion of the resident HNW population, and have been in the Netherlands for less time than the European average.

- Discretionary mandates account for 49.9% of portfolios, while 42.3% is invested in advisory mandates and 7.8% in execution-only mandates.

- The largest share of HNW wealth is allocated into equities, which make up 44% of the typical HNW portfolio, while bonds constitute 31%.

- The desire to receive better returns through advisors and investors' highly complex portfolios are the leading reasons why Dutch HNW individuals seek professional advice.

- Those seeking to self-direct at least part of their wealth are largely motivated by the desire to retain exclusive control over part of their portfolio.
