Spear's Magazine and WealthInsight Report Shows Global Multimillionaire Gender Gap

A recent research project conducted by Spear's magazine and WealthInsight has uncovered a stark gender gap among high net worth individuals: Only 10 percent of the world’s multimillionaires with a net worth of $30 million or more, excluding their personal residence, are female. WealthInsight’s global database of millionaires was used for this report.

Numerous nations with developed economies fall below the global average, including the United States (9.4 percent), the Netherlands (5.9 percent), and France (8.5 percent). Conversely, the developing economy of the Philippines exceeds that 10 percent benchmark by more than 100 percent. Twenty-one percent of it multimillionaires in the Philippines are women. Additionally, the study reveals that Portugal has the highest percentage of multimillionaires at 24 percent. Japan has the most disproportionate mix of multimillionaires, as only 3.7 percent are women.
