Summary

The Malaysian HNW sector has seen a shift from self-made wealth towards inherited assets and family ownership as former entrepreneurs pass their wealth on to new generations and family businesses focus on consolidation. Resident investors dominate the market, and the vast majority of expats have been in the country for more than three years. Within the country, investors are increasingly confident and seek more sophisticated products and services, especially within the popular equity space, with high returns and increased convenience the primary drivers for accessing wealth management advice. However, the use of planning services is still limited and notable opportunities exist in this field, especially in the areas of inheritance and pensions.

Key Findings

  • Malaysia has been negatively affected by recent economic and political problems that have impacted the net worth of many HNW individuals and reduced overall wealth.

  • Advisory mandates are far preferred to discretionary, but self-directed investment is increasing in popularity as investors gain confidence.

  • Fintech is changing the way investors operate, and HNWs are very interested in mobile, online, and digital applications.

  • Equities and cash dominate asset allocation, although fixed income investments are growing in popularity.

  • Demand for planning services is limited, but is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years.
