New York Has The Most Billionaires In The World

September 19, 2014 | Marina Galperina

According to the newest “Billionaire Census” from Wealth-X and UBS, there are 7% more millionaires in the world than last year. Most of them reside in New York, home to the biggest wealth gap in the country. There are 103 billionaires in the city, followed by 85 in Moscow and 82 in Hong Kong.

A typical billionaire is worth $3.1 billion, a dude, 63-years-old, married, with two kids. The census says that 35% of these billionaires do not have a bachelor’s degree, but an earlier Forbes assessment will tell you that most of them make their money from “investments,” which could mean many, many tactical things they don’t teach at your college.

Considering that “a typical billionaire owns four properties,” they might not actually even live here. We’re #1! We’re #1? (Photo: @aleksivic)
