Look for a bigger piggy bank. You need that much money to be counted among the 1 percent.
Our financial life goals remain modest for now. Before we make an attempt to belong to the list of all billionaires in the Netherlands – or Belgium – we must first be part of the illustrious 1 percent club. But how much does such a pricey membership cost?
The richest 1 percent per country
The 1 percent club rose to near-infamous status during the global financial crisis of 2008. But the wealth required to join their ranks varies widely from country to country. While the 1 percent can be considered the pinnacle of excess, the price of club entry falls well below the definition of a so-called ultra high net worth individual. Also called a person with a net worth of more than $30 million. As explained earlier, the greatest concentration of this UHNWI is unsurprisingly found in Monaco. And the Prince State once again takes the cake.
According to an annual report by Knight Frank, a global consulting firm and major real estate player, the amounts below are each country’s minimums to be among the local wealthy ultra-elite. Thanks to the European allies, you can get an idea of how much the registration fee costs in the Netherlands.
|New Zealand||€4.8 million|
|United States||€4.7 million|
|Hong Kong||€3.1 million|
|United Kingdom||€3 million|
