 - The total number of HNWIs in the UK declined by 12.0% over the review period (2007 to 2011), while HNWI wealth dropped by 17.1%.
 - Equities are the largest asset class for HNWIs in the UK (27% of total HNWI assets), followed by business interests (25%), real estate (17.8%), fixed income (17.0%), cash (7.3%) and alternatives (6.4%).
 - Fixed income and cash holdings were the best performing asset classes over the review period, driven by a flight to safety during and after the global financial crisis.
 - Driven in particular by a strong commodities market, the alternative asset holdings of British HNWIs increased over the review period from 6.1% of total assets in 2007 to 6.4% in 2011. This was mainly due to a significant rise in commodity holdings.
 - Over the forecast period, WealthInsight expects a further movement away from real estate and towards alternatives, equities and fixed income products.
