Global Wealth Report 2022

By the end of 2021, global wealth totaled an estimated USD 463.6 trillion, which is an increase of 9.8% versus 2020 and far above the average annual +6.6% recorded since the beginning of the century. Setting aside exchange rate movements, aggregate global wealth grew by 12.7%, making it the fastest annual rate ever recorded. Wealth per adult continued rising to USD 87,489 at the end of 2021. While financial assets have accounted for most of the increase in household wealth since the global financial crisis, the split between wealth increases driven by financial and non-financial assets was almost even in 2021. Accounting for inflation lowers the wealth growth rates. In 2021, we estimate the increase in real wealth to have been +8.2%. As we look ahead toward a period of more elevated inflation than in the past two decades, the comparison of real and nominal wealth trends grows in relevance.
