GlobalData's 'United Arab Emirates (UAE) Wealth Management - High Net Worth (HNW) Investors 2022' analyzes the investing preferences and portfolio allocation of UAE's HNW individuals. It profiles HNW investors in terms of their demographics, examines the allocation of HNW investors' portfolios, analyzes their propensity to invest offshore, and explores their product and service demand. The report is based on our proprietary Global Wealth Managers Survey.

The HNW ecosystem in UAE is characterized by a growing proportion of entrepreneurs and family business owners. Reflecting the sizable percentage of expats in the country, wealth managers in such a competitive market cannot afford to ignore this lucrative segment. While the largest chunk of HNW wealth is held via advisory mandates, demand for robo-advice is forecast to rise. In addition, a multi-service proposition is a must as demand is expected to increase across all planning services, with a particular focus on next generation programs.


  • Expats constitute a noteworthy 40% of the local HNW population. They represent an attractive target market thanks to their more complex service requirements.
  • Robo-advice accounts for 13.6% of the UAE HNW portfolio. The market for robo-advisory services is growing rapidly in the country's HNW space.
  • Equities, property, and bonds dominate UAE HNW investors' asset portfolios.
  • The average UAE HNW investor offshores 50.1% of their wealth abroad. This proportion is expected to increase over the next 12 months, indicating that many HNW investors are uncertain about the country's economic recovery and are willing to look for investment avenues in other markets.
