Is $ 65 million rich

Assets: 1,365,000 millionaires live in Germany

There are prominent individuals who make the puppets dance at champagne parties, who like to jostle their way into the television and who are immediately in front of their eyes. But they are the rare exception. Most millionaires in this country live rather shy and reserved - although they are no longer that rare. Because there are now 1.365 million millionaires in Germany.

This was the result of a study by the management consultancy Capgemini. She defines a millionaire as someone who has investable assets greater than a million dollars. Real estate, collections and consumables used by the owner are not taken into account. Capgemini calculated the figures on the basis of general wealth development on the one hand and the data on wealth distribution on the other.

Compared to the previous year, the number of millionaires in this country has risen by around 85,000, and in the past 15 years it has even doubled. There are currently around 18.1 million millionaires worldwide - an astonishingly high number at first glance.

Company bosses are one of them

However, the statistics also take into account company owners, for example, from small medium-sized companies to the owner of a large company, provided that it is privately owned. Even the value of a small company, however, often quickly exceeds the million mark.
