Wealthinsight research says Tokyo the place to be if you want to meet a millionaire.
- Tokyo has the highest number of millionaires than any other city in the world today. There are 461, 000 of them.
- Next is New York (or rather, more particularly Manhattan), which has 389, 000.
- London is third, with 281, 000
- Paris comes in fourth at 219, 000
- Just ahead of Frankfurt with 217, 000.
- But, remember that the USA has 5 million millionaires, whereas Japan only has 2 million.
- But, in Tokyo, they are all concentrated in one place.
- They are spread out all over the USA.
- Japan looks as if it may also lose its second place in terms of total number of millionaires in the country, overtaken by China in about 2020.
- The US would have by then about 7.7 million millionaires, while China would have 3.3 million.
