Overall, the US has the highest number of ultra-rich people in the world at 240,575, which is more than Europe and Asia combined, to account for almost half of the global total.

China is ranked second with 61,587 people, Germany third with 23,078 people and France fourth with 18,776 people.

Despite this, the world’s UHNWI population – those with a net worth of US$30 million or more – rose by 6.4 percent, according to our new Wealth Sizing Model,” indicates the report.

In the next five years, some of the highest forecast growth in the number of rich individuals will be India with a growth of 73 percent, followed by Egypt at 66 percent and Vietnam at 64 percent.
