Now in its eighth year, The Wealth Report is an invaluable source of insight and data for the global Ultra High Net Worth Individual (UHNWI) community and their advisors. This report is an excellent read not just for the financially secure but also for those looking to get there.
It offers a unique perspective on the performance of luxury residential property, commercial property investments, wealth distribution patterns and the spending trends of the world’s wealthiest individuals.
As the world’s largest independent property consultancy, Knight Frank works with UHNWIs and their advisors through a network of 330 offices across 48 countries.
This makes us uniquely placed to provide advice on all aspects of development and investment across the globe’s key residential and commercial markets.
Over the past eight years, against a backdrop of unparalleled economic instability, The Wealth Report has documented the performance of prime property in the most sought-after international locations. Our experts, led by Knight Frank’s unrivalled global research
team, have explored the latest trends, pointed to current opportunities and highlighted some longer-term plays.
I am especially pleased that this year’s report features contributions from leading
commentators, including: Sir Richard Branson; Dr Pippa Malmgren, former economic advisor to US President George Bush; entrepreneur and philanthropist Lord Harris of Peckham; leading Malaysian industrialist Tan Sri A K Nathan; Laurent Perignon, CEO of luxury yacht business Camper & Nicholson; and James Lawson, founding director of Ledbury Research.
The biggest trend to emerge from this year’s report – and one that is underlined by our revealing interviews with leading developers such as India’s Abhishek Lodha and Australia’s Lang Walker – is the increasing globalisation not only of property investment, but also of funding and development. This trend is reflected by Knight Frank’s strategy of offering a full range of residential and commercial services and expertise in the locations
where our clients want to invest, not just now but in the future too.
