The rich are everywhere. But you can find nearly three-quarters of them across just 10 countries.
Seventy-two percent of the global ultra-wealthy population (265,490 individuals) was spread across 10 countries in 2018, according to Wealth-X’s 2019 World Ultra Wealth Report. The report analyzed data from Wealth-X’s global database of more than one million records of the world’s richest people.
It defines the world’s ultra-wealthy population as those with $30 million or more in net worth. While the top 10 countries added a net 1,365 ultra-wealthy individuals since 2017, the combined net worth of all on the list declined by $362 billion (1.5%). However, these changes are close to the global average.
Take a look at which countries worldwide have the biggest ultra-wealthy populations, ranked in ascending order. Note that Hong Kong ranked in both Wealth-X’s top countries and top cities lists, as it’s a semi-autonomous, special administrative region of China.
