In the World Cup of Wealth, the U.S. Wins

America has more than three times the number of ultra-high-net-worth investors than Germany

This time, it's the number of ultra-high-net-worth investors living within our borders.

According to data extracted from the Wealth-X and UBS 2013 World Ultra Wealth Report, the United States has by far the most people with a net worth of more than $30 million, more than triple the number of these ultra wealthy investors found in No. 2 (in the World Cup), Germany.
