Defining a person’s ‘wealth’ goes beyond the typical measures of bank accounts and real estate, including many smaller things you might not immediately consider. Anyone who has been involved in the closing of a family member or friend’s estate would be familiar with all the little things – furniture, jewelry, art – that can have an impact on an individual’s overall wealth. Calculating the wealth of a country is vastly more complicated, combining public and private assets and applying fair market value. Thankfully there are plenty of people working on Wall Street who – despite being a poor addition to your dinner party – enjoy these types of calculations, leaving us with a visual we have found very interesting.
In collaboration with our friends at www.visualcapitalist.com, please enjoy the attached infographic, which displays ‘Total Wealth’ by country. Thank you and have a great month!
