Wealth in Canada to 2022: Sizing the Market Opportunity – ResearchAndMarkets.com – Associated Press

This post was originally published on this site

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 11, 2019–The “Wealth in Canada: Sizing the Market Opportunity 2018” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report analyzes the Canadian wealth and retail savings and investments markets, with a focus on the HNW segment.

Canada became the strongest G7 economy in 2017 with GDP growth at 3%, having weathered the oil price crisis of the past two years. This in turn influenced growth in the country’s wealth market in 2017.

The future outlook however, is that the pace of economic and wealth market growth will reduce due to geopolitical risks, and increasing interest rates affecting consumer spending.

Scope

Affluent individuals held just under 80% of Canada’s total liquid assets at the end of 2017. HNW individuals account for less than 1% of the total population, but hold over a quarter of the country’s wealth. Mutual funds have overtaken deposits, with the largest share of Canadian retail investor portfolios at 41%. This is mainly driven by balanced funds, as investors embrace the benefits of diversification. Rising interest rates have slowed the rate of growth in deposits as consumers have had to spend more servicing debt; however, the hikes influenced the inflow of new money into bond holdings. The non-resident investments market in Canada is small, but reached an all-time high in 2017. Equities remain the largest offshore investment asset class.
