Japan and China Lead the Way in HNWI Population and Wealth Growth

Japan and China, which hold over two thirds of Asia-Pacific’s HNWI population, drove 85% of the HNWI population growth in 2013, increasing their number of HNWIs by 22% and 18% respectively to reach 2.3 million and 758,000. HNWI wealth increased at the region’s highest rates of 24% to US$ 5.5 trillion for Japan, and 20% to US$ 3.8 trillion for China.

The report explores how Asia-Pacific’s ultra-HNWIs grew their wealth at about twice the rate of their peers in the rest of the world, both in 2013 (20% vs. 10%) and in the five-year period from 2008-2013 (average annual growth rate of 17% vs. 8%).
