The Centi-Millionaire Report was released recently by leading international residents and citizenship investment advisory firm Henley & Partners, Viet Nam News said.
The report says with an astonishing 95% growth rate predicted, this emerging Asian manufacturing hub is expected to see a strong growth of centi-millionaires in the real estate, technology, and financial services sectors.
India is next in line with an anticipated 80% growth rate in individuals worth more than $100 million USD by 2032.
Mauritius has recently emerged as a hot spot for migrating centi-millionaires, with the growth of 75% predicted for this safe, business-friendly African island nation.
New Zealand and Australia are also forecast to enjoy exceptional growth with 72% and 60%, respectively.
The US is home to an astonishing 38% (9,730) of global centi-millionaires, despite constituting only 4% of the world’s total human population. The big emerging markets of China and India follow in second and third place, with populations of 2,021 and 1,132 centi-millionaires, respectively. They rank significantly higher than the main European markets by this measure, with the UK in fourth place (with 968 centi-millionaires) followed very closely by Germany in fifth place (with 966).
As Dr. Juerg Steffen, CEO of Henley & Partners, points out, the $100 million plus band represents the best definition in today’s world of what it means to be ‘super-wealthy’.
“The centi-millionaire is someone so affluent that they don’t need to think about how much they spend," he said.

"In fact, the level of wealth they have achieved means they are unlikely to ever worry about money again. Not long ago, in the late 1990s, $30 million USD was considered the fortune needed to meet this definition. However, asset prices have risen significantly since then, making %100 million USD the new benchmark.”
According to the report, there appears to be no set path to attaining centi-millionaire status; some inherited their wealth while others worked their way up to the %100 million mark.
