MillionaireAsia India - - Ten Years of Living The High Life -

The wealth of the world’s rich­est and their num­bers have con­tin­ued to grow de­spite the shaky global eco­nomic re­cov­ery. Some 810 in­di­vid­u­als have joined the ranks of the world’s bil­lion­aire club since 2009 and whose com­bined net worth has ex­panded to US$6.5 tril­lion by 2013; ex­ceed­ing the GDP of every coun­try in world, ex­cept the United States and China. Wealth-X, a Sin­ga­pore head­quar­tered ul­tra-high net worth (UHNW) in­tel­li­gence provider, has teamed up with Swiss nan­cial ser­vices ma­jor UBS to pro­duce the Wealth-X and UBS Bil­lion­aire Cen­sus 2013. It is cur­rently the only sur­vey of its kind and en­com­passes statis­tics com­men­tary on in­di­vid­u­als with net worth of at least US$1 bil­lion – based on re­gion, coun­try, gen­der and the sources of their wealth.
