Amost all of Qatari high net worth individuals (HNWIs) who participated in a survey indicated that they are currently invested in the real estate sector.

Qatari respondents in the survey by Barclays Wealth expressed a positive outlook for the real estate sector with all stating that real estate would be a safe investment over the next 12 months.

The report, 'Risk and Rules: The Role of Control in Financial Decision Making', is based on a global survey of more than 2,000 HNWIs, and provides an in-depth examination of wealthy investors from a behavioural finance perspective.

In addition to considering the different financial personality traits that exist amongst wealthy investors, the report shows their views on nine main asset groups: real estate; cash; alternative strategies (long/short funds, arbitrage etc); equities from both developed and emerging markets; bonds from developed governments, blue-chip corporations and high yield/emerging markets; and commodities.
