Don’t feel too sorry for the Swiss though. Monaco ranks as the world’s richest country by per capita wealth in 2017, according to AfrAsia Bank Global Wealth Migration Review 2018.

It’s also worth noting that approximately 2,800 of Monaco’s 38,499 residents are estimated to be worth over $10 million.

Just to provide some perspective, in terms of private wealth per person, Monaco and Liechtenstein top the list, with the average individual owning $2 million and $761,100 in private wealth, respectively.
