2012 Global Wealth Market

After a sharp decline in 2008 and a smaller drop in 2011, the global wealth market is expected to recover in 2014–15 once the global economy picks up. Yet growth will not be even and there is a clear divide between the mature and emerging markets, with emerging markets set to show double digit growth - a trend which is set to bring about a change in the established order of country wealth markets.

North America's status as the largest wealth market is not threatened by the exponential growth of the emerging markets. While the poor performances of Japan and Western Europe will cause them to be overtaken by Asia Pacific (excluding Japan), which will become the second largest regional market by 2015.

The top 10 country wealth markets will change in 2012, with Brazil and India entering and Spain and Taiwan exiting. Taiwan is in fact growing faster than many other mature markets, but is still set to exit the top 10, largely due to the explosive growth of India and Brazil and the country's relatively small size.

Males account for the majority of HNW individuals in all regions, with a stronger lack of balance in the Middle East and near-parity in North America. Middle East and Asia Pacific HNW individuals are generally younger than their counterparts in Western Europe and North America. Entrepreneurship is the most common source of wealth worldwide.
