Changing fortunes across our rankings over the past 12 months have seen Hong Kong and Singapore continue to slug it out for pole position in Asia.
This year Hong Kong edges ahead, moving from fourth to third position in our global top 10.
With Shanghai maintaining its steady rise, Asia holds four of the top 10 slots in our list. Although Geneva loses ground this year, Zurich’s strengthening helps maintain European representation.
Focusing purely on the population of wealthy residents, our data confirms that London remains the single biggest centre for global UHNWIs, followed by Tokyo, Singapore and New York.
