The Wealth-X Billionaire Census 2019 ☘ Hoey Team ☘ eXp Realty Florida

Dated: September 14 2019

Views: 9

The sixth edition of the Wealth-X Billionaire Census reveals that global billionaire wealth declined by 7% in 2018 after reaching record levels the previous year, and the billionaire population also declined by 5.4% in 2018 to 2,604 individuals.

This is only the second time this population has dropped since the global recession a decade ago. The report attributes this significant decrease in wealth to heightened market volatility, global trade tensions and a slowdown in economic growth.

According to the Wealth-X Billionaire Census 2019, many global factors contributed to this fall in global wealth, including a slowdown in global growth, persistent trade tensions and a late-year slump in equity markets. A related strengthening of the US dollar encouraged capital outflows from emerging markets, triggering currency volatility and risk aversion.

To further understand the implications of this decline, the Billionaire Census 2019 uncovers numerous trends among this exclusive population, including:

  • North America was the only region to record an increase in billionaire population – Asia-Pacific, which led billionaire growth in 2017, posted the largest decline in 2018 (13.4%).
  • San Francisco has significantly more billionaires per inhabitant than any other top city – with one billionaire for approximately every 11,600 residents. New York, Dubai and Hong Kong follow in 2nd to 4th place respectively.
  • Billionaires are increasingly congregating in a cluster of cities – the top 15 billionaire cities accounted for almost 30% of the global billionaire population in 2018.
  • Nearly all of the top 15 countries by billionaire population saw a decline – except the US and three European countries: the UK, Russia, and France.
  • Philanthropy is the leading passion or hobby among billionaires – the not-for-profit sector accounts as a primary industry for 4.8% of billionaires; once they have consolidated their fortunes, many billionaires make the full-time transition toward building a philanthropic legacy.

The findings of the Billionaire Census 2019 are derived from Wealth-X’s global database of more than one million searchable records on the world’s wealthiest individuals. This proprietary database provides unrivaled insight into the status of the world’s wealthy, the constantly changing structure of the billionaire population, and emerging trends for future wealth creation.
