Wealth in the US: Sizing the Market Opportunity 2017 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Wealth in the US: Sizing the Market Opportunity 2017" report to their offering.

"Wealth in the US: Sizing the Market Opportunity 2017" analyzes the American wealth and retail savings and investments markets, with a focus on the HNW segment. The report is based on our proprietary datasets.

The US is home to the largest affluent population in the world and hosts a very advanced financial services sector, including the most sophisticated mutual fund and equity markets globally. The large affluent population is financially literate with high retail participation in both equities and mutual funds. US wealth managers thus have a lucrative target market onshore. In the future, growth in the affluent population's liquid assets will be pronounced compared to other developed economies. At the end of 2016, over two thirds of the US adult population was considered affluent, making the US home to the largest affluent population in the world.
