The folks at Wealth-X have released their billionaires census which tracks everything about the world’s billionaire population, including that 23% of them attend some sort of an art-related event:
Globally, the billionaire population has reached a record 2,325 people, which is a 7 percent increase from 2013. Their total net worth of $7.3 trillion is 12 percent higher than last year’s net worth and higher than the combined market capitalization of all the companies in the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
“North America—the region with the most billionaire wealth in 2013—was overtaken by Europe in terms of billionaire wealth in this year’s census,” said the report. However, the U.S. maintains its position as the world’s top billionaire country, with 571 billionaires in 2014.
Here are other countries with a high concentration of billionaires:
United Kingdom: 130
Hong Kong: 82
Saudi Arabia: 57
