    Ultra-high-net-worth individuals (UHNWI) are people with investable assets of at least $30 million. They comprise the wealthiest people in the world and control a tremendous amount of global wealth. This group of people is small but continues to grow. It totaled 521,653 individuals globally in 2020, up 2.4% from 2019, according to Knight Frank's The Wealth Report, published in 2021.1 The U.S. has the most UHNWIs in the world by a large margin.2

    The U.S. is home to over a third of the world's UHNWIs—180,060. That's over two and a half times more than China, the country with the second-highest number (70,426), and more than all of the European countries combined at 151,665.2 From 2020 to 2025, the ranks of the ultra-wealthy will grow by 27%, according to Knight Frank. Asia will see the most growth (39%), followed by Africa (33%). The U.S. will continue to have the most UHNWIs by 2025, adding 24% super-rich individuals.2 Eighty-five percent of ultra-high-net-worth wealth is held by people 50 and older, and a majority are men, according to a report published by the Milken Institute in 2020. Only one in seven are women, but that number is on the rise.3 Among those below the age of 50, women account for almost one in five.4

    Many of the world's super-rich citizens are self-made individuals. This is evident in Forbes' annually curated list of the world's richest people. On its World's Real-Time Billionaires List, the magazine ranks the daily worth on its wealth-tracking platform. According to the website, "The value of individuals’ public holdings are updated every 5 minutes when respective stock markets are open (there will be a 15-minute delay for stock prices)."5 On Forbes' ever-changing list, Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos holds the top spot as of July 12, 2021. He is followed by Bernard Arnault, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg, in that order.5All except Arnault founded or co-founded their own companies. Only Musk and Zuckerberg remain CEOs of their companies. Others near the top of the world's UHNWI population include several family members of Sam Walton, the late founder of Walmart.5

Twenty-one percent get most of their wealth from their investment portfolios, and 14% get most of their wealth from their salary. Many UHNWIs invest in investment property. That is, on average, UHNW individuals have 21% of their wealth invested in investment properties (mostly either residential or office buildings).7 When Forbes published its list of billionaires for 2020, it pointed out that billionaires suffered losses or slow growth in 2020, but the number of billionaires still grew—with more billionaires than ever in 2021.
