We are delighted to welcome you to the first edition of The Wealth Report in this new decade. The next ten years have been dubbed by some the new “roaring twenties” and we are optimistic that they will live up to the name.
One of the most exciting movements is the growing focus on well-being we see among Douglas Elliman clients. As high-lighted in our unique annual Attitudes Survey (results on page 99) not only are people devoting more time to their own physical and emotional “wellness,” but a focus on environmental health and global communities is on the rise.
This presents many opportunities for readers of The Wealth Report, whether it is the investment potential of the global demographic trend towards longer, healthier lives explored in detail in our “Big interview” on page 10 or the ability of forward thinking property investors and landlords to benefit from the demand for healthy workspaces, as discussed on page 76.
Indeed, as the inaugural results of our proprietary wealth sizing model, unveiled on page 18, reveal, wealth continues to be created around the world, especially in Asia’s economic hubs, and this growth in private capital is noticeably impacting the global real estate market. With rising affluence, “giving back” is increasingly important to ultra-high net worth individuals, and on page 86 we profile three fascinating philanthropists whose work benefits a diverse range of causes.
With the world around us changing fast, Douglas Elliman continues to adapt to our clients’ developing needs and aspirations, to ensure that clients are fully informed of future trends and opportunities in real estate.
We operate wherever our clients need us and our expertise spans the globe. If Douglas Elliman can be of any help to you, please do get in touch. We hope you enjoy reading The Wealth Report.
