Total personal offshore wealth grew by 6% to reach US$8.2 trillion in 2017.

US$2.3 trillion (28%) of this was managed in Switzerland. The top three offshore centres: Switzerland ($2.3 trillion), Hong Kong ($1.1 trillion) and Singapore ($0.9 trillion) made up more than half (52%) of the total.

Over the last five years annual growth rates in Hong Kong (+11%) and Singapore (+10%) have outstripped Switzerland’s (+3%). Offshore centres such as the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands declined over the same period.
