The global high-net-worth population continued its upward trend last year, with some notable nations reversing downward trends. According to CapGemini’s recently released World Wealth Report 2017, the HNW population grew by 7.5 percent from 2015 to 2016 and their total wealth increased by 8.2 percent over that same period.
This strong growth continues to push the HNW population toward breaking the $100 trillion mark in total assets, which CapGemini predicts will happen by 2025.
