Asia now has the most millionaires

Capgemini and RBC Wealth Management report that there are now 11 million millionaires in the world . That seems like a lot, I think. But, I can’t really picture what 11 million people look like. I’d then have to imagine those 11 million among the  7,021,480,637 humans in the world. [1]  That gives us around 0.16 percent. So, you take a hundred people that represent the world population, and stare at one guys shins. Those shins represent the millionaires. The world isn’t overrun with them, but they’re powerful and interesting to us.

A new millionaire statistic now places the number of Asian millionaires above the number of millionaires in North America for the first time.

The wealth of millionaires in Canada and the United States fell 2.3% to an accumulated total of US$11.4 trillion. This drop has not taken away North America’s title of the wealthiest region.  The actual number of millionaires has fallen by 1.1%, leaving North America with 3.35 million. [2]

While the accumulated wealth of Asians has fallen, leaving them with a total of US$10.7 trillion, the number of millionaires in the Asia-Pacific region has grown 1.6% leaving Asia with a total of 3.37 million millionaires.

The goal for us, is to push this number higher. Let’s push for those millions. If you’re not interested in becoming one, thats fine. For those who do, let’s build. Try those ideas. Get out if that comfort zone. Most people won’t agree with your dreams. The statistics show, that most of us aren’t millionaires, therefore, most won’t share your vision or boost you. Keep pushing!
