  4. 4. CONFIDENTIAL © Aprikot Pte Limited The Asia-Pacific HNWI population grew 9.7% to 3.3 million in 2010, exceeding Europe and nearing North America. The region’s HNWI wealth grew 12.1% to US$10.8 trillion. Japan remains the single largest HNW segment in Asia-Pacific, accounting for 52.5% of the region’s HNWIs, followed by China (16.1%), and Australia (5.8%). Asia-Pacific is home to many of the world’s fastest-growing HNWI populations. The 20 fastest-growing HNWI populations were in Asia-Pacific and MEANA markets, including Hong Kong, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and India1. Product Push §  Malaysia continues to be a product-push market, despite talk about the concepts of financial planning and wealth management (most of Asian markets are also product-push markets). §  Regulations provides help in changing the mindset, through greater disclosure in fees and charges. Skill/Knowledge §  Regulators are ramping up their efforts in terms of the qualifications of people who sell wealth management products. §  The shortage of skilled people is a big challenge in the market. Regulators §  There are two regulators in Malaysia, covering the securities industry and the banks. Therefore, Industry Association (IBBM) need to play a very active role in the shaping the industry needs and requirements. Client Education §  The education level of clients varies greatly between customers. In the mass, low-affluent space, client education is weak. In the priority banking segment, clients are used to the product- pushing culture, so seldom question investment decisions made by bankers – which actually puts the bankers are risk of mis-selling. In the private banking sector, while clients are a bit more sophisticated, it is generally only those clients who have access to private banks in Singapore, Europe or elsewhere who are well-educated enough to question their bankers. Need/Requirement §  As Malaysia liberalizes further and allows more money to flow in and out of the market, more clients are getting exposure to new asset classes. This requires Malaysian bankers to acquire Wealth Management skills and competency quickly and effectively.
