The 2013 Schroders Global Investment Trends Report is the most comprehensive poll of global investor opinion that we have ever undertaken.

We have spoken to 14,800 ‘active investors’, people with €10,000 or equivalent to invest over the coming 12 months.

We chose investors with at least €10,000 because they represent affluent investors, but are not solely high net worth or ultra high net worth individuals. These people represent the views of middle-class investors, as well as the wealthiest in society.

As a result, the Schroders Global Investment Trends Report gives a detailed analysis of the way in which investors at all wealth points are looking to adapt their investment strategies in 2013, to reflect the changing economic landscape.
