UBS and Wealth-X have teamed up again to produce the World Ultra Wealth Report for 2014, totting up the number of people with $30 million or more (£19.1 million). The number of mega-wealthy Europeans is up to over 60,000 this year, and UBS have got a map showing the cities they live in.
There’s a huge amount of information in the report: you might be surprised to learn that Germany has far more ultra-high net worth (UHNW) residents than the UK. With a population only 25% higher than the UK, Germany has 65% more super-wealthy people, and nearly a third of Europe’s total.

Two days before talks on forming a new German government, Merkel’s Bavarian allies hosted Orban in a reminder of her open-borders stance that provoked domestic and European rifts and has complicated her path to a fourth term. Orban is among eastern leaders who reject a Merkel-backed plan to resettle refugees across the European Union.
“We were organizing border protection at a time when other places in Europe were celebrating chaos and a breakdown of law and order,” Orban told reporters at a meeting of Bavaria’s ruling Christian Social Union party at an Alpine hotel on Friday. “As I said two years ago, you can count on me as the captain of your border protection.”
