Around 46 percent of UHNI in India are likely to increase their investment in private equity segment in 2019.
31 percent of the survey respondents around the globe said that they are going to increase allocation to private equity this year.
The report found that the positive attitude of UHNWIs towards investments in asset class has also gone up to 26 percent in Asia in 2019 as compared to 20 percent last year.
On average, private equity finds 4 percent allocation in the overall investment portfolio of Indian UHNWIs, while the global average for such allocation is 7 percent, the survey found.
“In India, where the volume of wealth is rising the fastest globally, UHNWIs in the country are expected to decrease cash exposure and increase their allocation to private equity in 2019 as local investors grow in sophistication,” Knight Frank India Chairman and MD Shishir Baijal said.
