Asia High Net Worth
In Brief
Life insurance can be a powerful, cost-effective tool in wealth and estate planning solutions, and HNW and mass affluent markets represent a broadening range of opportunities for product development and the provision of value-added services.
The world’s high-net-worth (HNW) market today totals approximately 12.4 million individuals, all of whom have investable assets of more than US$1 million. Asia Pacific comprises 4.3 million of those individuals, or more than one-third of the total.
