Where do the world’s super rich reside? – Marca English

It is with much anticipation that the annual Forbes Billionaires List is released, and the 2022 edition has given us an indication as to just where the world’s richest people are living.

The United States of America boasts 867 people classed as billionaires, which is significantly more than China, who has the next highest amount with 607 billionaires.

According to the 2022 Forbes list, 236 new billionaires were added to the list over the course of the past 12 months, which included the first ever billionaires from Estonia, Bulgaria, Uruguay and Barbados.

Where are the billionaires living?

Whilst the United States of America and China dominate the list, there are a number of countries in Europe which house a number of billionaires, albeit on a much smaller scale.

The United Kingdom has between 41-60 billionaires, whilst the Russian Federation has 83 billionaires, although it’s unclear just how much this landscape will change ahead of the 2023 rich list, due to the illegal war Russia has started with Ukraine.

India is one of the wealthiest countries in the East, housing 165 billionaires, whilst Brazil dominates South America with 62 of their own billionaires.

Africa is a continent that is still attempting to catch up, with the 2022 list showing that no more than six countries on the content have any billionaires at all.
