Credit Suisse Research Institute’s Global Wealth Report 2020
The Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of information on household wealth worldwide. Last year, total global wealth rose by USD 36.3 trillion and wealth per adult reached USD 77,309, up 8.5% versus 2018. As a consequence, the world has been better placed to absorb any losses from COVID-19 during 2020. However, while events this year caused widespread wealth losses during January–March, these were reversed by June in most countries. Surprisingly, global household wealth is slightly above the level at the start of the year.
