With growing concerns about inflation and market volatility, the wealthy in Asia are redirecting cautiously. 

Research 2022 by Private Bank Lombard Odier of high net worth individuals in Asia Pacific (APAC) shows that they are redirecting to the private market to protect assets from market volatility.

Where are the Wealthy in Asia Investing their Money?

Wealthy people are increasingly moving away from stocks and bonds to focus on private companies or assets considered safer like gold and cash.  At the same time, they mostly stay away from cryptocurrencies which are particularly volatile.

The drop in tech stocks and soaring inflation amid rising interest rates have made a deficit of $1.4 trillion in the accumulated wealth of the 500 richest people in the world, according to a Bloomberg index. It's the complete opposite of the situation of the past two years, as central banks ease fiscal and monetary policy to support the economy through the pandemic, helping asset classes such as stocks or cryptocurrencies and the personal wealth of the rich skyrocket.

According to Lombard Odier, rising inflation and its effects on the global economy were the biggest concern for 77% of respondents.  Half of them are worried about market volatility which has prompted 56% of them to increase diversification.  83% of the wealthy individuals in the survey also stay away from cryptocurrencies.

Lombard Odier's study involved more than 450 high-net-worth individuals in Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Taiwan and Australia.  The group manages approximately $363 billion of clients globally.
