List of countries by wealth per adult[edit]

2017 November[edit]

Credit Suisse S.A. publishes each year in Autumn the Global Wealth Report Databook. It reports all figures referred to the net wealth. These figures are influenced by real estate prices, equity market prices, exchange rates, liabilities, incidence in a country of the adult population, human resources, natural resources and capital and technological advancements (which may create new assets or render others worthless in the future). During periods when equity markets experienced strong growth, the relative national and per capita wealth of the countries where people are more exposed on those markets, such as the US and UK, tend to rise. On the other hand, when equity markets are depressed, the relative wealth the countries where people invest more in real estate or bonds, such as France and Italy, tend to rise instead. Countries with more aged population like Germany and Italy would have higher relative wealth, if calculated per capita and not per adult.[1]
