The annual Capgemini World Wealth Report is one of the most important surveys on the global wealth sector, chronicling changes to the assets of high net worth and ultra-HNW individuals. It tracks increases or falls in the HNW and UHNW population, and breaks these figures down by region and sector, as well as drawing out themes emerging from the statistics. Past reports, for example, have noted the rise of Asia-Pacific wealth, the rising profile of philanthropy and ESG investing, along with inter-generational wealth transfer issues.
