UK investors and their assets of choice

The Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index Q2 2017*, which tracks the price growth of 10 luxury investment sectors, shows that whilst classic cars have dominated the rankings for the past few years, jewellery and wine have powered ahead this year.
Jewellery, “a highly mobile store of wealth”, rose by 4 per cent over the last 12 months. Overall, however, jewellery has risen in value by 142 per cent over the past 10 years.
Wine, up 25 per cent, was the top performer in the Q2 2017 index thanks to strong growth in the key Bordeaux, Burgundy and northern Italian markets. No other asset class achieved double-digit growth across the past twelve months.
Classic cars have moved into sixth place, with average prices rising by just 2 per cent to Q2 2017.
And in separate research, according to Barclays Wealth’s UK Prosperity Map rising house prices have led to highest ever number of UK millionaires – with one in 79 now a millionaire.
The increase has jumped up 44,000 on last year and nearly half of all millionaires live in London and the South East, where houses are the most expensive.
