The UK’s wealthy

The number of high net worth individuals (HNWI's) in the United Kingdom (UK) and in Europe from 2009 to 2018 has seen overall growth. Although the total number of HNWI's in Europe remained stable, the UK saw a fall of almost 20 thousand individuals between 2017 and 2018. Despite this, the UK has the fourth highest population of individuals that are in the top one percent globally. The vast majority of HNWI’s reside in the Asia Pacific, North America and Europe regions.

Europe’s Wealthiest

In 2018, Germany had more high net worth individuals than France and the UK combined. When it came to billionaires in European countries, the gap was not so large. HNWI’s wealth in terms of assets is held mostly in equities, cash and cash equivalents, fixed income and real estate.
