Global Wealth Report 2014

Source: Credit Suisse

From the Introduction:

The Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date source of information on global household wealth... Unlike other studies, this report measures and analyzes trends in wealth across nations from the very base of the “wealth pyramid” to the ultra-high net worth individuals....

Although the global economic environment has remained challenging, total global wealth has grown to a new record, rising by usD 20.1 trillion between mid-2013 and mid-2014, an increase of 8.3%, to reach USD 263 trillion – more than twice the USD 117 trillion recorded for the year 2000. With an 11.4% year-on-year increase, wealth creation was particularly strong in North America, where it now stands at USD 91 trillion, or 34.7% of total wealth. Europe made the second largest contribution, with wealth increasing 10.6% to USD 85.2 trillion. In both regions, capital markets were a key source of wealth growth: equity market capitalization grew by 22.6% in the United States, while Canada, France and Germany all recorded gains close to 30%. As we noted last year, Asia and particularly China will account for the largest portion of newly created wealth among the emerging markets. however, we find that emerging-market wealth growth has not been able to maintain its momentum from the pre-crisis period between 2000 and 2008. this should not distract from the fact that personal wealth in India and China has risen by a factor of 3.1 and 4.6 since 2000.
