(MENAFN Press) There were just over 94,000 HNWIs in Turkey in 2012. These HNWIs held US500 billion in wealth, which equates to 43% of total individual wealth held in the country.

Turkish HNWIs outperformed the worldwide HNWI average during the review period “ worldwide HNWI volumes decreased by 0.3% whilst Turkish HNWI numbers rose by 7.4%.

Growth in HNWI wealth and volumes are expected to improve over the forecast period. The total number of Turkish HNWIs is forecast to grow by 58% by 2017. HNWI wealth will see a smaller percentage increase of 48%.

Asset allocation of HNWI investments

In 2012, business interests were the largest asset class for HNWIs in Turkey (24% of total HNWI assets), followed by equities (22%), fixed income (19.6%), real estate (18.4%), cash (11.8%) and alternatives (4.3%). Fixed-income products recorded the strongest growth over the review period, driven by a movement into safer assets and relatively high local savings rates.

Over the forecast period, alternatives are expected to be the top-performing asset class for HNWIs, followed by fixed-income products. As a result, there will be a movement away from cash and towards alternatives.

Core millionaires “ volume and wealth trends

Core millionaires collectively account for only 48% of the wealth of Turkish HNWIs, which is well below the worldwide average of 70%.

UHNWIs “ demographic and sector trends

Diversified is the most important industry from which Turkish UHNWIs have acquired their wealth “ it is the primary source of wealth for 43% of local UHNWIs. This reflects the nature of local companies with a large proportion of Turkish companies covering more than one core industry.

Financial services, in second place, was the primary source of wealth for 13.4% of UHNWIs.

UHNWIs “ regional and city trends

Istanbul is the largest city for Turkish UHNWIs, accounting for 58% of total UHNWIs. There are also sizable UHNWI populations in Ankara, Izmir, Antalya and Bursa.

UHNWIs in the largest city “ Istanbul “ rose by 26% over the review period, which was in line the country average.

Wealth management in Turkey

Turkey is seen as a core emerging European wealth management market, after a decade of political stability and economic progress under the AKP government elevated Turkey's position in the eyes of international investors and wealth managers. Investors from the Gulf region, Russia and former Turkic Republics account for a major share of the potential investor base

As of 2012, there are 28 private banks active in Turkey, the largest of which are Garanti and Yap Kredi.
