India’s GDP grew at an annual growth rate of 8% in 2011, and has a strong growth outlook. This makes the country an attractive investment location for wealth management firms. India has the main components that comprise a high-growth wealth management market, including: a very large and young affluent customer base, an improving wealth situation among global Indians, a goal to more tightly regulate financial services by the Indian government, and an increasing share of organized companies compared to the unorganized workforce. India currently has the fourth-largest number of high net worth individuals (HNWIs) in the Asia-Pacific region, after Japan, China and Australia. There were 251,000 HNWIs in India, which cumulatively owned assets that valued US$1.1 trillion in 2011. The volume of HNWIs in India increased at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.20% during the review period (2007–2011), while the total HNWI wealth increased in value at a CAGR of 2.47%.
