Spain Wealth Management – High Net Worth (HNW) Investors
All the vital news, analysis, and commentary curated by our industry experts.
Spain Wealth Management Report Overview
Female HNW investors remain underrepresented, but have a huge potential to grow in the Spanish wealth management market. Males account for more than 85% of the total HNW population in the country, which is slightly above average for Europe. Several programs have been established to educate and support women in establishing businesses to foster female participation in the field of entrepreneurship. For instance, in September 2022, the government launched The Break: a 10-week program for EU resident women that aids female entrepreneurs by offering mentorship, networking opportunities, and access to funding.
The Spain wealth management market report sizes the opportunity within Spain’s wealth market and analyzes the investment preferences, service requirements, and portfolio allocations of the country’s HNW investors.
Spain Wealth Management Market Dynamics
Spanish HNW individuals have made their fortunes predominantly through earned income. The entrepreneurial HNW market is notably smaller but growing rapidly. Despite the global economic downturn and volatile market conditions, the Spanish entrepreneurial segment has remained resilient.
To encourage business creation and expansion, in February 2021, the government launched the Spain: Entrepreneurial Nation Strategy, which includes 50 measures to support entrepreneurs. The strategy aims to boost investments, help retain and attract talent, increase the scalability of companies, and provide administrative and regulatory support for entrepreneurs. These measures include the introduction of the Startup Law and the creation of RENACE – a national network of entrepreneurship centers, incubators, and accelerators. Family-owned business is a small but growing source of wealth for the Spanish HNW population. Family businesses play a key role in the country’s economy.

Spain Wealth Management Market Investment Preferences
The key investment preferences in the Spain wealth management market are advisory asset management, automated investment services, discretionary asset management, and execution-only asset management. There is currently strong demand for most styles of asset management services. However, demand for advisory mandates is expected to remain stagnant. Furthermore, there will be a rise in demand for discretionary mandates which can be partly attributed to growing levels of trust, as wealth managers have navigated their clients through volatile market conditions following the outbreak of COVID-19.
Automated investment services will make further inroads into the HNW market. Factors such as changing client demographics and preferences as well as the rapid advancement of technology are driving the growth of digital investment platforms. In addition, rising confidence in managing their own investments is driving Spanish HNW individuals to opt for self-directed investments. A surge in the adoption of digital investment tools such as robo-advisors and online broking platforms have sparked the interest of digital-savvy HNW investors. Also, another reason for investors to engage in self-directed investing is because a significant portion of their wealth is locked in the form of property, collectibles, or other physical assets. Wealth managers need to educate investors about the range of financial products they can provide to offer better diversification.

Business Intelligence & Marketing Manager, SAL Heavy Lift
“The GlobalData platform is our go-to tool for intelligence services. GlobalData provides an easy way to access comprehensive intelligence data around multiple sectors, which essentially makes it a one-for-all intelligence platform, for tendering and approaching customers.
GlobalData is very customer orientated, with a high degree of personalised services, which benefits everyday use. The highly detailed project intelligence and forecast reports can be utilised across multiple departments and workflow scopes, from operational to strategic level, and often support strategic decisions. GlobalData Analytics and visualisation solutions has contributed positively when preparing management presentations and strategic papers.”
Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk
“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”
Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB
Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.
Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods
Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.
Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered
Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.
I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.
I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.
Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan
“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.
Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”
Senior Account Manager, TSYS
GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise. The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.
I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.
One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
