"Wealth in India: HNW Investors 2017", analyzes the Indian investment market, with a focus on the HNW segment. The report is based on our proprietary datasets.

The Indian wealth management market is characterized by family business owners and inheritors. A lack of expertise and access to sophisticated investment products are driving uptake of financial advice. However, execution-only services are the most popular. As many Indian wealthy individuals made their wealth through the IT sector, it is unsurprising that demand for automated services is forecast to rise. Wealth managers should develop digital propositions to attract this tech-savvy client segment and meet their high expectations in terms of financial advice. Equities are the preferred asset class, and as economic growth will be strong, demand for this product will continue to rise. The provision of financial planning services is also mandatory.
