Super Rich Still in LOVE with London – Knight Frank Wealth Report

The Knight Frank Wealth Report ranks cities based on four factors: Economic Activity, Quality of Life, Knowledge & Influence and Political Power, as well as taking into account the number of Ultra-High-Net-Worth Individuals who inhabit each city.

The report has found that London continues to remain the most ‘important’ city for the ultra-wealthy, although its reign will end within a decade when it is overtaken by New York.

Knight Frank’s Liam Bailey said: “History, location and their long-established wealth mean that London and New York’s positions look unassailable, at least for now.

“It is further down our leader board that the real city wars are being waged”.

“The main battleground is Asia, where a handful of locations are slugging it out in the hope of establishing a clear lead as the region’s alpha urban hub.”
