Stonehage Affluent Luxury Living Index 2009

Stonehage Affluent Luxury Living Index, or SALLI is an index to measure the inflation experienced by High Net Worth (HNW) and Ultra High Net Worth (UHNW) individuals and families. It’s Sterling-based.

PDF file : SALLI 2009

One key highlight is that SALLI actually falls by an average of 3.7% in 12 months ended on April 09, compared to average inflation rate of 2.3% of UK’s CPI over the same period. This is under the background of significant fall in the value of Sterling against USD and Euro. SALLI deflation will be even greater if not for this reason. In a way, recession affects HNW/UHNW individuals spending. In another way, it’s “cheaper” to live as HNW/UNHW individuals now.

We can take a glimpse of luxury industry through SALLI.

It’s eye-opening to see what the High Net Worth (HNW) and Ultra High Net Worth (UHNW) live on. This can be seen from the component items of SALLI from the pdf file. (Check out the items, the brands etc…)

It’s really an extremely big gap between HNW/UHNW and the masses. :-)
