HNW (High net worth) – more than USD 1 million
UHNW (Ultra high net worth) – more than USD 30 million
Billionaire – more than USD 1 billion

 

Christine Li, Knight Frank Head of Research APAC: “According to the latest issue of The Wealth Report by Knight Frank, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) population of ultra-high-net-worth individuals (UHNWIs) declined by 5.7% in 2022, after a record climb of 7.5% in 2021. Despite so, 3 out of 10 markets that saw the fastest-growing UHNWIs globally were from Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia at 7.0% – 9.0%. Taking the longer view, the wealth story remains compelling as the region will continue to lead the pack in the unending wealth expansion with plenty more opportunities for UHNWs to discover.” 

 

Knight Frank Victoria Garrett

Victoria Garrett, Knight Frank Head of Residential APAC: “While the UHNW population contracted last year, the number of high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs), those with US$1m or more in net assets, expanded by 2.9% to almost 70 million worldwide.

The top three countries for HNWIs’ growth were Malaysia, Brazil and Indonesia. Additionally, 100 prime residential markets globally saw average price growth of 5.2% and luxury investment assets grew 16%. The top 10 global locations for forecast growth are dominated by European and Asian economies. The region’s economic growth story will remain urban-centric, and its residential investment landscape will continue to be defined by its prime urban cores. Underpinned by its high rates of urbanisation, investors can look forward to a more sustainable growth trajectory and wealth preservation profile.”
