medum-high (income)

"Perfil" here may refer (depending on what the rest of the context suggests) to a statisical "profile" of a range of incomes. I.e. not to the personal "profiles" of consumers.

"High income" and "medium high income" are some terms used in marketing studies contexts in English; and here "income" may be understood (again, depending on what the rest of the context suggests).

Here are some citations:-

... it is the brand that influences the younger public's ... They all they have a MEDIUM HIGH INCOME... asked more specific questions to those who indicated the brand ...

... its production of luxurious watches, especially the Swiss brand ... year-round that the
