In this month’s review we take a look at the “How Will the Wealthy Fare in 2020?” This an exclusive report recently published by Wealth-X, a world leader in wealth information and insights. Understanding the impacts that affect the wealthy is obviously critical to luxury real estate as they shape the spending power and ultimately the decisions of the affluent.
The report may surprise some due to it’s prediction that 2020 will be “a year of solid expansion for the world’s wealthiest individuals”, despite uncertainty and inflamed economic growth. Overall, the prediction maintains a possible slight did, but overall growth.
Looking forward to the rest of 2020 and beyond, Wealth-X assessed the uncertainty in the US — with global geopolitical and trade tensions, inflationary pressures and the looming election, their prediction model shows “that even a recession is unlikely to constrain wealth growth in the longer term.”
