Key Highlights
There are just over 28,400 HNWIs in Poland in 2012. These HNWIs hold US$139 billion in wealth which equates to 16% of total individual wealth held in the country.
In 2012, equities were the largest asset class for HNWIs in Poland (31% of total HNWI assets), followed by business interests (24.8%), real estate (19.0%), fixed income (14.3%), cash (6.8%) and alternatives (4.6%).
Business interest and fixed-income products recorded the strongest growth over the review period, driven by new business formation and a movement to safer asset classes. Equities and real estate registered the weakest performance.
Over the forecast period, alternatives are expected to be the top-performing asset class for HNWIs, followed by equities and real estate. As a result, there will be a movement away from cash and towards alternatives.
As of 2012, HNWI liquid assets amounted to US$23 billion, representing approximately 16.3% of the wealth holdings of Polish HNWIs.
WealthInsight’s research showed that in 2012, 36% of Polish HNWIs have second homes abroad. The largest destinations for these homes include Geneva, Zurich, Paris and London.
At the end of 2012, Polish HNWIs held 30.6% (US$42 billion) of their wealth outside of Poland, which is well above the norm for worldwide HNWIs of between 20% and 30%.
