In a world where wealth continues to accumulate, the number of high-net-worth individuals (based on Capgemini’s definition of an HNWI as an individual with US$1 million in wealth to invest), and the value of their assets are distributed between North America, Asia-Pacific, and Europe. By the end of the last year, global wealth increased at a significant rate of 9.8%, which is far above the average annual +6.6% recorded since the beginning of the century. Researchers expect global wealth to record a cumulative rise of 36% in the near future, with middle-income countries primarily driving global wealth increases. The forecast is that the number of millionaires will exceed 87 million individuals over the next five years.
