Ultra HNWIs in Mexico 2013

Date: 24-Jun-2013
As of the end of 2012, there were 2,540 UHNWIs in Mexico which could be broken down into 16 billionaires, 252 centimillionaires and 2,272 affluent millionaires. Between 2007 and 2012 the number of UHNWIs in Mexico increased by 19% from 2,129 to 2,540.


There was a wide range of performance between the different UHNWI wealth bands as the number of billionaires increased by 14%, while the number of centimillionaires and affluent millionaires rose by 24% and 19% respectively. This falls in line with the fact that, with a total combined wealth of US$364 billion, Mexican UHNWIs held 49% of the total wealth of the country’s HNWIs, well above the worldwide average of 30%.  Between 2008 and 2012, UHNWI wealth increased by 43%, compared to the 32% rise experienced by core HNWIs. This strong growth was fuelled by a 68% rise in billionaire wealth.


Manufacturing is the most important industry from which Mexican UHNWIs acquired their wealth; it was the primary source of wealth for 17.4% of local UHNWIs. Other important industries include financial services (14.7% of UHNWIs) and diversified (9.1% of UHNWIs). As well as this, the fastest growing sectors between 2008 and 2012 were basic materials, retail and transport & logistics.


Unsurprisingly, Mexico City is the largest city for Mexican UHNWIs, accounting for 43% of total UHNWIs with just over 1,088 individuals. As well as this, there are sizable UHNWI populations in Monterrey (208 UHNWIs) and Guadalajara (129 UHNWIS).



It has been estimated that, at the end of 2012, Mexican local private banking assets under management (AuM) totaled just over US$190 billion. The top five banks by local AuM are Banorte, Banamex (Citigroup), BBVA Bancomer, Santander and Scotiabank. Interestingly, the number of wealth management offices per UHNWI in Monterrey and Guadalajara is relatively low. This shows that there is scope for more wealth managers to set up business in these two cities.
