Global Wealth Report 2013

This annual wealth report for 2013 from Credit Suisse states that wealth has reached an all-time high of US$241 trillion. This shows that despite the continuing global economic challenges, there has been a positive growth of global household wealth.
 
The richest nations, with wealth per adult exceeding US$100,000, are found in North America, Western Europe and among the rich Asia-Pacific (Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong) and Middle Eastern countries. Due to China’s strong growth, it now holds third place in the top 10% of global wealth holders, only surpassed by USA and Japan.

 

Wealth is expected to rise by nearly 40% over the next five years, reaching US$334 trillion by 2018. Emerging markets will count for 29% of the growth, where China will contribute to 50% of that increase.
