Global Wealth Report

The 2023 UBS Global Wealth Report (GWR) was released on August 15th. Its principal authors include Jim Davies (UWO, Economics, Professor Emeritus), and three other academics in Sweden, the United Kingdom and Uruguay. The report analyzes trends in the levels and distribution of household wealth around the world. It shows that wealth per adult has grown, globally, at an average rate of 6.6% since the year 2000, although that growth has been a little slower since the global financial crisis in 2008. Wealth inequality for the world as a whole has fallen according to most measures this century, largely because of the rise of wealth in China and other emerging market countries. Details of methods and results for all countries are provided in the UBS Global Wealth Databook available at the GWR site.
