Does living in San Francisco make you more likely to become a billionaire, or are billionaires simply drawn to this beautiful, innovative and inspiring city? Either way, there’s something going right around here when it comes to accumulating wealth as San Francisco’s Bay Area is home to the world’s third largest billionaire population.
Wealth-X is a New York based data analysis service with a focus on the super rich. The company has recently reported that wealth in San Francisco is on the increase. Of the 2604 billionaires in the world, 705 of them live in the US, and 75 billionaires call San Francisco their home.
Where has more billionaires than San Francisco?
The report showed that the area with the most billionaires is New York with 105 billionaire inhabitants, followed by Hong Kong with 87. However, in the same census last year, Hong Kong had 93 billionaires, so that’s a drop of 6. With the number of San Francisco billionaires on the rise, next year could perhaps see SF make the number 2 spot.
The most billionaires per inhabitant
While San Francisco doesn’t hit the top spot for overall numbers of billionaires, it does have way more billionaires per capita than any other city in the world. For every 11,600 San Francisco residents, one of them is a billionaire! New York only has one billionaire per 80,000 residents!
