Summary

The Philippines is home to a relatively small affluent population, and the country's financial services sector is somewhat unsophisticated relative to many of its ASEAN-6 neighbors and other developed nations. Retail participation in the equities and mutual fund markets is very low, with the bond market traditionally more popular but the majority of allocations still held in deposits. However, very strong economic performance over recent years and a new government committed to shaking off the image of the Philippines as the 'sick man of Asia' bodes well for the future of its financial services sector and the population's financial literacy. Local wealth managers may not currently have a particularly large lucrative target market onshore, but this segment will grow significantly and wealth managers need to be ready to capitalize on the opportunity.

Key Findings


  • At the end of 2015, 1.12% of the Philippines' adult population was considered affluent, and this segment is forecast to grow by 50% over the next five years. The HNW segment accounts for 0.03% of the population, but holds over a third of the country's liquid wealth.

  • The Philippines' retail investments market has doubled over the last five years, and Verdict Financial forecasts a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.2% to 2020 - adding $78.26bn in assets.

  • The vast majority of HNW assets - 97.5% - are allocated to traditional liquid assets. Of the 2.5% held in illiquid assets, 95% is allocated to property (mostly direct property holdings).

  • HNW Filipinos hold 12.8% of their total liquid assets offshore - a relatively small proportion in comparison to their neighbors in Indonesia, Singapore, and Hong Kong, where HNW investors offshore a third or more of their wealth.
