Global Wealth Distribution 2013

Credit Suisse have just released their latest Global Wealth Databook 2013

The most interesting point is this diagram representing Global Wealth distribution:

distribution of wealth around the world for 2013

Global Wealth Pyramid 2013

If you have a net worth of over 1m USD then congratulations – you have done extremely well. You are in the top 0.7% of the Worlds Population. You lucky, lucky, lucky …. Staggering. Conversely almost 70% of the world have less than 10k USD wealth.

Here’s an interesting quote from the report:

Apart from the rich lists, which cover a relatively small number of named individuals, there is a  scarcity of information on wealth holdings above USD 1 million. Survey details are patchy at best, and official statistics based on tax returns are often inadequate given the complexity of  wealth ownership arrangements.

Download a copy of the PDF report here – its interesting reading. And while you are there grab a copy of the Global Wealth Report 2013 – it’s worth a skim too.
