BITE A Close-up on Ultra-High-Net-Worth Women Investors

22 Jul 2021

Research indicates that Asian women investors have a higher tolerance for risk than their peers in the United States and the United Kingdom, however, compared to men, women appear to have a lower tolerance for investment risk.


Although women may represent a small number of the world’s ultra-high-net-worth investors, it is currently the highest it has ever been and if you consider women under 50, the numbers are even a few percentage points higher than the total average. While previously, many ultra-high-net-worth women inherited their wealth, today, many are building their own wealth. In the United Kingdom, for example, women entrepreneurs are starting businesses at more than twice the rate of men such that by 2035, it is projected that women will earn more than 60% of the country’s personal wealth.
