Nearly 1 in 20 in Switzerland are millionaires, according wealth to report

The 2017, a wealth report, published by Capgemini, shows there were 389,000 US$ millionaires in Switzerland, around 4.5% of the population, or close to 1 in 20.

If children under the age of 15 are excluded, Switzerland’s millionaire percentage rises to 7.3%.

In addition, these figures include only investable wealth, which does not include the value of family homes. If this wealth was included, the number of millionaires would rise further.

Switzerland’s millionaire percentage was well ahead of the 0.2% global average, and more than double that of the United States, where around 1.6% of the population was a millionaire. In the UK the rate was 0.9%. Even the wealthy asian city states of Hong Kong (2.3%) and Singapore (2.2%) trailed Switzerland.

Switzerland was home to 2.1% of the world’s millionaires but only 0.1% of the world’s population. This means a Swiss resident is 21 times more likely to be a millionaire than someone plucked at random from the global population.

In 2017, the number of Swiss millionaires rose 6.9% and has been rising steadily since 2008 in line with global stock prices. In 2008, there were only 185,000 Swiss millionaires.
