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.
