Worldwide, there are an estimated 18.1 million dollar millionaires, a figure which is also 10 percent up. This puts the Belgian increase just below the global rise.
The rich Belgians represent a total capital worth 313.9 billion dollars. The rich got richer mostly due to economic growth and the stock exchange, Capgemini reports. Private banks account for a substantial growth of capital, but Belgian dollar millionaires are not really happy about the asset management. The magic figure of one million dollars represents, at present, about 865,000 euros.
