Additional information on where billionaires choose to live

Once one reaches the status of a billionaire he has the freedom to live wherever he likes, within reason. Yet despite this a large number of the world’s billionaires are concentrated in a select number of the world’s mega-cities. This has as much to do with the location of their wealth, business interests and further earning potential as it does with the quality of life in those cities. A look at the most significant industries in the global billionaire production line helps to explain the prominence of the traditional capitals of global business including New York, London and Hong Kong. The place of many Chinese cities on the list can in part be explained by the strong performance of industrial conglomerates from the country in recent years.

The dominance of these mega-centers has begun to be questioned by impressive economic growth in China. Not only is Beijing now home to the most billionaires of any city, but the country itself now boasts the most billionaires of any country in the world. However, seven of the top ten wealthiest billionaires still came from the United States as of 2018.
