Even though growth across asset classes was subdued in 2018, gross financial assets reached EUR 172 trillion worldwide. But do we use this huge amount of wealth in a responsible manner? The challenges that lie ahead are huge: demographic and climate change, poverty and migration, digital revolution and outdated infrastructure – to name but a few. Therefore, we look not only at asset volumes and growth, but also analyze asset structures and wealth distribution as well as saving behavior and debt discipline.
Not surprisingly, the wealth of data is also huge! With the interactive “Allianz Global Wealth Map”, readers can navigate the “data jungle” by themselves. Simply click on a country and retrieve data, from total financial assets to liabilities per capita. The data will be represented in two different ways: either as development over time or as regional comparison for the latest year. And for the quick reader, there are the five most frequently asked questions about the wealth situation of households at the top of the map.
All figures in Euro are converted on the basis of the 2018 exchange rate.
