Meet the Advisable Australian

Australia is currently home to about 18 million people aged over 18 years old with a combined household wealth of approximately $9.3 trillion.  The Advisable Australian report looks to understand the wealth characteristics and attitudes of these people, looking at such factors as their financial literacy, wellbeing, resilience and likelihood to use financial advice. Not all Advisable Australians look the same, and nor do they behave in the same way or have the same financial advice needs and preferences. We divide the universe of Advisable Australians into four distinct groups.

Established Affluent

Over 45 years old, wealthy individuals, highly engaged in investing and most likely to already have an adviser. The approximately 2.8 million Established Affluent Advisable Australians have total household wealth of about $4.1 trillion.

Emerging Affluent

Under 45 years old, wealthier individuals, highly engaged and interested in investing, and most likely to seek an adviser. There are approximately 1.9 million Emerging Affluent Advisable Australians accounting for about $1.8 trillion of household wealth.

Established Mass Affluent

Over 45 years old, lower-income earners with fewer investments. The 8.0 million Established Mass Market Advisable Australians account for about $2.3 trillion of household wealth.

 

Emerging Mass Affluent

Under 45 years old with modest to low wealth, with low levels of investment. Approximately 5.3 million Emerging Mass Market Advisable Australians account for about $1.1 trillion of household wealth.
