The top 10 list of the Richest Countries in the World is drafted on the basis of latest report given by the International Monetary Fund assessments and US Central Intelligence Agency’s lists of countries by GDP (PPP) are discussed below:
|Rank||Country||Private Wealth in $USD (2019)||10-yr change (%)|
|#1||United States||$60.7 trillion||27%|
|#4||United Kingdom||$9.1 trillion||4%|
Combined, the 10 countries above represent 74% of total private wealth worldwide.
These trends are staying consistent with the numbers seen in 2017. Asian countries such as China and India showed the highest uptick in wealth gains, holding their #2 and #3 spots on the list, while European countries such as France and Italy actually saw a decrease.
Australia now tops the above list in terms of highest wealth per adult, and it is second in the world only to Switzerland in the context of major nations.
Despite the recent turmoil and uncertainty stemming from Brexit, the United Kingdom still saw overall growth in the past decade, moving from #5 to #4 rank on the list of countries with the highest private wealth.
Projections from New World Wealth estimate that total global wealth will reach $291 trillion by 2028, driven by strong growth in Asia.
