METHODOLOGY

2016 Global High Net Worth Insights Survey

The Capgemini 2016 Global HNW Insights Survey queried more than 5,200 HNWIs across 23 major wealth markets in North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa. Respondent demographics, as broken down by region, age, gender, and wealth band, are captured in Figure M1 and M2 on page 42 and 43 respectively of the World Wealth report 2016.

The Global HNW Insights Survey, the largest global survey of HNWIs across the globe, was administered in January and February 2016 in collaboration with Scorpio Partnership, a firm with 18 years of experience in conducting private client and professional advisor interviews in the wealth management industry.

The 2016 survey covered key areas around HNWI investment behavior including asset allocation, and social impact investments. The survey measured current HNWI investment behavioral patterns of global HNWIs, including their asset allocation preferences as well as the geographic allocations of their investments. The survey also covered the motivations and categories for social impact investment preferred by HNWIs.

 

To arrive at global and regional values, country- and region-level weightings, based on the respective share of the global HNWI population, were used. This was done to ensure that the survey results are representative of the actual HNWI population.

2016 Capgemini Wealth Manager Survey

The second edition of the 2016 Capgemini Wealth Manager Survey queried more than 800 wealth managers across 15 major wealth markets in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. Respondent demographics, as broken down by region, age, and gender, are captured in Figure M2.

The survey was administered in January and February, 2016, in collaboration with Phronesis Partners.

It focused on the emphasized analysis on the following key areas: Wealth manager view on the future of wealth management industry; wealth manager importance and satisfaction regarding key digital capabilities provided by the firm; wealth manager views on digital tools for clients, automated advisory services, and peer-to-peer advice forums; and wealth manager judgment regarding their firm’s expectations from them.

To arrive at the global and regional values, country- and region-level weightings, based on the respective share of the global HNWI population, were used. This was done to ensure that the survey results are representative of the size of the actual market (by HNWI population).
