Wealthy Hong Kongers to reach 831,000 by 2025

The global number of millionaires could go over 84 million in the next five years.

The number of millionaires in Hong Kong is expected to rise to 831,000 between 2020 and 2025, a 59.8% increase from the current 520,000, the Credit Suisse reported.

This, however, reflected a 44% decline from the 560,000 number of people with more than US$1m in the city, recorded in 2019.

In its Global wealth report 2021, Credit Suisse projected that the global number of millionaires will likely exceed 84 million over the same period.

The US, which has the largest number of millionaires, will likely remain at the top with an estimated 28.05 million wealthy by 2025. It is followed by China’s millionaires, expected to reach 10.17 million.

Hong Kong was amongst the economies that recorded the biggest loss in terms of change in wealth per adult in 2020.

Credit Suisse estimated that wealth per adult dropped US$26,419 to US$503,340. Despite, Hong Kong remained in the third place in the top 60 countries with the highest total wealth per adult.
