Where would you live if you were superrich?

“Anywhere I want,” you might answer.

However, more than two-thirds of the world’s 255,810 people who have a net worth of $30 million or more are concentrated in 10 countries, says Wealth-X, which tracks “ultra-high net worth” people so that prestige brands in the financial services, luxury, not-for-profit and higher education fields can market to them.

Wealth-X’s latest annual report says the number of superrich was up nearly 13 percent in 2017 compared with a year earlier. Together they represent $31.5 trillion in wealth, a 16.3 percent gain from 2016.

About 1 in 5 of the superrich are gathered in 10 cities across the globe, five of those in the United States.

Here’s where they live, according to metropolitan area, with the number of ultra-high net worth individuals and the change in the population from the previous year. We also sum up the country rankings, which differ from the city totals because a nation’s superrich may be more spread out rather than concentrated in a few cities.
