Taiwan’s affluent population (comprising high-net-worth [HNW] and mass affluent individuals) accounted for just over a quarter of the country’s total adult population in 2018. However, the segment held 80.7% of the country’s total onshore liquid assets, with mass affluents alone holding more than half. HNW individuals in Taiwan hold the majority of their wealth in traditional liquid assets such as equities, mutual funds, and bonds - a trend that is anticipated to continue through to 2022.
This report analyzes Taiwan’s wealth and retail savings and investments markets, with a focus on the HNW segment. This includes the overall affluent market size (both by the number of individuals and the value of their liquid assets) as well as a breakdown of liquid vs. illiquid HNW holdings. The report also provides analysis of the factors driving liquid asset growth, including a breakdown and forecast of all retail savings and investments split by asset classes including deposits, mutual funds, equities, and bonds.
