20 May 2014 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – In 2013, real estate accounted for 30% of Indian HNWI assets which made it the largest asset class; the business interests asset class followed in accounting for 23.6%, equities for just over 23%, alternatives for 8.5%, fixed-income – around 8%, and cash and deposits – nearly 7%. The alternatives, business interests and real estate assets posted growth at the rates of just under 70%, 57% and 48%, respectively, during 2009–2013. Alternative assets held by India’s HNWIs increased to comprise 8.5% of total HNWI assets as of 2013, in comparison with around 7.5% in 2009. Indian HNWI allocations to commodities increased by 1.1% to 4.9% from 2009 to 2013.

Through 2018, allocations in commodities will likely decline to account for 3.6% of Indian HNWI assets by 2018 due to the tightening of the global liquidity on the back of an expected decline in China’s demand for raw materials that will cause worldwide commodity prices to rally. As of 2013, Indian HNWI liquid assets totaled USD 476.8 billion – equivalent to nearly 38% of wealth holdings.
