This report sizes the opportunity within the UK wealth market and analyzes the investment preferences, service requirements, and portfolio allocations of UK HNW investors. The report is based on our proprietary Global Wealth Managers Survey.

Most HNW individuals in the UK gained their wealth through earned income and are showing strong demand for planning and ESG-based products. However, a multi-service proposition is a must as demand is expected to increase across all planning services and mandates, especially robo-advisory services. Wealth managers need to adjust their current service proposition to better serve the post-Brexit environment, which will continue to affect investments.


  • Expats constitute 18.9% of the local HNW population. They represent an attractive target market thanks to their more complex service requirements.
  • UK HNW individuals spread their investments almost in line with the European average, with equities, cash and near-cash, and property dominating.
  • The average UK HNW investor offshores 42.6% of their wealth abroad. While this proportion is expected to strongly increase over the next 12 months, the rise is expected to be less pronounced than in the wider region.
