Seizing the Global HNW Expat Opportunity, 2018 - The Global Market Grew from 1 Million Individuals in 2014 to 1.2 Million in 2017 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

August 23, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 23, 2018--The “Seizing the Global HNW Expat Opportunity” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

With increased global mobility, the global expat market has been growing rapidly. Be it for lifestyle, work, retirement, or tax-efficiency reasons, more and more HNW individuals are leaving their home countries to start a new life abroad.

Expats constitute over 11% of the global HNW population, equating to around 1.2 million individuals. This represents a sizable (albeit competitive) target market for wealth managers to target a desirable but highly competitive group with tailored product suites.

The US is home to the largest expat market when considering number of individuals (around 170,000). However, it is in the UAE, Singapore, and Hong Kong where expats constitute the largest proportion of the resident HNW population and where competition is thus the fiercest.

Looking at origins, HNW expats from Greater China and the Indian subcontinent make for the largest target markets, closely followed by HNW expats from the US and the UK. Service requirements can differ significantly between these diasporas, justifying the formation of dedicated desks reaching out to specific client groups.

Key Findings

The global HNW expat market grew from 1 million individuals in 2014 to 1.2 million in 2017. Expats who emigrated from Greater China and the Indian subcontinent make for the largest target markets. 60% of HNW expats have resided in their country of choice for five years or more. However, those who expatriated as part of a job transfer are less likely to migrate permanently. 40% of HNW expats migrated to start a business, while another 24% expatriated as part of a job transfer. 34% of HNW expats have been acquired via client referrals and contacts, and 20% via internal referrals.
