The amount of wealth controlled by the world's population of super rich individuals
continues to increase every year. According to finance firm Capgemini

Asian millionaires now control more wealth than those in North America. Driven by services, technology and healthcare, Asia's millionaires are now worth $17.39 trillion compared to North America's $16.61 trillion.
