Some Interesting Findings about the Wealthiest People in the World

July 15, 2016


UHNWI stands for Ultra-High-Net-Worth Individuals. UHNWIs are the richest people in the world, with a personal net worth of over $30m. In their report, The Wealth Report 2015, Knight Frank, the global real estate consulting company, sheds light on the many aspects of the lifestyle of today’s 173,000 UHNWIs, from wealth creation to philanthropy, from property investments to luxury spending trends. The survey’s findings offer a unique insight into the attitudes of the super-wealthy.

* Centa-Millionaires: As of 2015, there are 38,280 centa-millionaires, with a personal wealth worth of over $100m.

* Power shift: Despite not being able to grab the top spots from London and New York, the number of UHNWI residents in Singapore and Hong Kong is set to increase more rapidly over the next 10 years. Looking to the future, one constant remains: the rise of the Asian powerhouse cities, the relative decline of the European centers, and the “tension” between the two global mega-cities, New York and London, with New York expected to be the most important city for global UHNWIs in 2025.

* UHNWI appetite for property increases: according to the survey, control of their property investments is clearly important to the wealthy – almost 80% of respondents said UHNWIs prefer to invest directly into property, with only 12% choosing to use a fund vehicle. Bricks and mortar retain their appeal for the latest generation of UHNWIs, with 45% of younger UHNWIs more interested in property than their parents.

* UHNWIs are now looking beyond prime property investment places as a safe haven for their funds – this means moving outside capital cities’ CBD (Central Business District) area, or heading into secondary cities, where better values and higher returns are available. More UHNWIs are allocating more of their funds to property investments outside their own country.

* UHNWIs are adopting increasingly sophisticated investment strategies, and sometimes this approach involves the kind of active management previously restricted to institutions and funds. Examples include refurbishment and development projects.

* Cities of the future – not yet on the list of the world’s top 10 or even top 20 most important cities, but their HNWI (millionaire) and UHNWI populations are rising, and they should certainly be on the radars in terms of the wealth-creation opportunities. The cities are: Belgrade in Serbia, Panama City, Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, and Yangon in Myanmar.

We are following UHNWIs because their actions set trends in many aspects of life, especially when it comes to investments, which then trickle down to the masses. Following their decisions and actions when it comes to real estate allows us to better understand and predict where the world of real estate investing is heading. What’s more, at iintoo, we developed a model enabling private investors to attain access to premium real estate investments, which were formerly reserved for the wealthiest or institutional investors. iintoo makes the world of investments more accessible to private individuals.

In our next posts, we will dive deeper into the Wealth Report, covering mainly real estate investing, and try, together, to better understand how those with deep pockets operate when investing their money.

We believe that great minds invest together. Join us today!

[:he]האותיות UHNWI הן ראשי תיבות של Ultra-High-Net-Worth Individuals. מדובר באנשים העשירים בעולם, שהונם האישי נאמד בכ- 30 מיליון דולר ויותר. ישנם 173,000 סופר מיליונרים שכאלה בעולם שכללי המשחק שתקפים לגבינו, בני התמותה, לא תמיד תקפים לגביהם.
הנה מספר עובדות על העשירים בעשירי העולם שהתפרסמו בדוח העושר האחרון של חברת ייעוץ הנדל”ן נייט פרנק:

  • בעולם חיים 38,280 אנשים שהונם עולה על 100 מיליון דולר והם מכונים סנטה מיליונרים.
  • לונדון וניו יורק הן הערים המובילות את רשמת הערים בהן חיים הכי הרבה סופר עשירים. באסיה העיר המובילה היא הונג קונג, בזכות הקשרים הכלכליים ההדוקים שלה עם סין. עם זאת בסינגפור, העיר הרביעית ברשימה, משמשת בית לאוכלוסיית הסופר מיליונרים הגדולה ביותר באסיה.
  • גם את תל אביב תוכלו למצוא ברשימת הערים המובילות, כאשר היא סוגרת את הרשימה במקום ה- 40.
  • בשנת 2013 היו בישראל 800 סופר עשירים, כאשר מספרם גדל בשנת 2014 ל- 1,437 ובשנת 2015 ל- 1,485 סופר עשירים המתגוררים בישראל.

  • הערים בעלות פוטנציאל הצמיחה הגדול ביותר, אחריהן ממליץ הדוח לעקוב הן: בלגרד בסרביה, פנמה סיטי, אדיס אבבה באתיופיה וינגון במיניאמר.

ולמה הסופר עשירים האלה מעניינים אותנו? מכיוון שהם אלה שקובעים את הטרנדים בתחומים רבים, בעיקר בעולם ההשקעות. מעקב אחר ההחלטות שלהם, בין השאר בתחום הנדל”ן, מאפשר לנו להבין לאיזה כיוון העולם יתקדם. אמנם לא מדובר בתחזית חד משמעית, אך עם זאת, כדאי להתחשב בהחלטותיהם של אנשים עם כל כך הרבה כוח.
בפוסטים הבאים, נצלול לעומק של דוח העושר, בעיקר בתחום הנדל”ן, וננסה להבין כיצד פועלים האנשים העשירים בעולם כאשר הם באים להשקיע.

*When we refer to “Equity Protection” we are referring to an arrangement where iintoo epiic GP LLC, the general partner of each covered issuer (“Covered Issuer”), promises that, even in the event the underlying project is not profitable or records a loss, the investor in the Covered Issuer shall receive a specified amount equal to the original principal investment he/she/it provided (less other amounts already received by such individual investor during the course of the investment) subject, however, to significant limitations including but not limited to repayments for losses in the Covered Issuer are only made up to a maximum amount of funds available from the retention account and the policy (where such policy limit may be less than the total amount invested), repayments are on a first come, first serve basis, and losses are aggregated across Covered Issuers subject to the same retention account and policy. iintoo epiic GP LLC, and not investors, is a party to the policy with Everest Insurance®.
