The Global Shift In Wealth Over The Last Decade

Here’s how wealth has changed hands over the last 10 years

$215 trillion.

That show much money can be found in private wealth, across the world, right now.

That’s an insane amount of money.

The scary thing is that amount is actually a 12% increase from 2017!

In fact, according to New World Wealth that figure includes wealth held by the general population, as well as the 15.2M millionaires (who have $1M+ in assets), 584,000 multi-millionaires (who have $10M+ in assets), and 2,252 billionaires (who have $1B+ in assets) in the world.

But like everything money related, it hasn’t always looked this sizable.
