GAIN ACCESS TO A WEALTH OF INSIGHTS
We are pleased to present the inaugural edition of the Global Luxury Residential Real Estate Report 2015, which identifies the most significant markets for ultra high net worth (UHNW) residential property investment, provides a profile of the global luxury residential property consumers and offers insights into their spending habits relating to their luxury residential property investments.
Luxury residential real estate holds a special place within the portfolio of the world's ultra wealthy. This report shows that UHNW individuals each own, on average, 2.7 properties. While they may purchase real estate for a variety of reasons - spanning from practical to passion to investment purposes - it represents one of the most intimate asset classes characterizing their wealth. For the purpose of this report, we are using the label "investment" to describe UHNW luxury residential real estate ownership, whether that was their purpose or whether the primary purpose is for their personal and private leisure or living.
The value of UHNW-owned residences globally rose by 8% in the past year, according to the report's UHNW Residential Real Estate Index. As capital continues to flow towards key cities and locations across the globe, and as available land becomes scarcer, such growth in value will continue.
The inaugural Global Luxury Residential Real Estate Report 2015 is the definitive source of data, insights and trends at the intersection between the world's UHNW population and the global luxury residential real estate industry, illuminating the opportunities that these individuals present for this sector.
