Where in the World Do the Rich Live?

There are almost 2 million more millionaires this year than last year, according to the 2014 World Wealth Report complied by Capgemini and RBC Wealth Management.

The number of high-net-worth individuals increased by 15 percent last year, totaling 13.7 million worldwide.

But where are these wealthy investors? Regionally, North America still claims the highest number of wealthy residents, expanding by 16 percent last year to 4.33 million. But Asia-Pacific is quickly narrowing the gap, increasing its population of high-net-worth individuals by 17.3 percent last year to 4.32 million.

Looking at individual countries, the four markets with the highest number of high-net-worth individuals comprise about 60 percent of the world’s millionaire population.
