SINGAPORE: The amount of private wealth in Asia is estimated to triple to US$16 trillion by 2015, according to Swiss private bank Julius Baer's annual wealth report done jointly with CLSA. Some experts say the surge could lead to asset inflation problems for many governments.
And amid the current market volatility, Julius Baer said its clients in Asia have taken on more liquid positions in order to re-enter the market at a better opportunity.
Indonesia is set lead the region's growth over the next five years in the number of people with liquid assets worth more than US$1 million. That number is expected to triple to nearly 100,000. That is above average for the region, where it is predicted the wealthy will more than double to 2.82 million by 2015.
But experts warn that the explosion of Asian wealth could pose a problem, with investment options limited to mainly property and the share market.
Kelvin Tay, Chief Investment Strategist with UBS, said: "In Asia in this point of time, currently we do not have as many investment choices as you would probably do if you are in the west or the US right now. So you need to actually look at that seriously and consider how you can actually broaden the scope for investment solutions to be found to cater to this increasing wealth that is being generated.

SINGAPORE : Property developers seem pessimistic about the outlook for Singapore's real estate market in 2012, with some analysts foreseeing a five to ten percent drop in property prices this year. But market watchers also say the strong interest in recent property launches could defy these forecasts and even lead to more cooling measures. Celebrations continue but property developers are still in the dark about the outlook for Singapore's property market in 2012. Mr Wong Heang Fine, President, Real Estate Developer's Association of Singapore, said: "We are cautious. On the market going forward, it all depends on how the global economy goes in the next eleven months. So it's really anybody's guess." URA data shows the rate of price increase for private residential properties moderating for the ninth consecutive quarter with rentals also tapering off.

Developed by NTUC Choice Homes, Trevista has a unit mix of studio, 1+1, 2, 2+1, 3 and 4 BR apartments. Expected to TOP in late 2012, this is Toa Payoh’s first condominium in more than a decade. In fact, Trevista is Toa Payoh’s third condo after Oleander Towers and Trellis Towers. This project comes with ‘full condo facilities’. Notable ones include a tennis court, a 50m lap pool and a rock climbing wall. Parking lots are underground. Unfortunately there are only about 590 lots available so your guests will have to find somewhere else to park. There’s a HDB MSCP right across the street in case they want to pay you a visit. Trevista is without doubt a mass market condo, with 590 units sharing a 50m lap pool and a single tennis court, this p
