• The wealth management and private banking sector in Hong Kong is well developed, with over US$250 billion in assets under management (AuM). Of this amount, only 26% is invested in Hong Kong itself while 24% is invested in mainland China, 30% in the rest of Asia, 11% in North America, 5% in Europe and the remainder allocated to Latin America, the Middle East and North Africa.
• Following its growth of 31% in 2009, the wealth management and private banking sector in Hong Kong grew by a solid 32% in 2010, increasing the level of AuM to 15% higher than level reached before the start of the global financial crisis.
• Hong Kong’s overall prospects remain bright. The PRC’s Twelfth-Five-Year Plan, which intends on internationalizing the Chinese currency for the first time, gives support to the development of Hong Kong as a Chinese offshore and international asset management centre.
