Getting Money: Number Of Black Millionares On The Rise
Getting Money: Number Of Black Millionares On The Rise

Climbing the corporate & money ladder.

The number of black millionaires in South Africa has risen by more than 80% but that is not enough of a number to balance the stats, reports the Star.

Research from New World Wealth, a global wealth consultancy, found that despite this increase, previously disadvantaged millionaires only represent 16 percent of South Africa’s millionaires.

The study discovered that there are 7 800 millionaires in this country from previously disadvantaged groups, which is relatively very low because these groups make up 90% of the country’s population.

“Despite transformation efforts over the past 20 years, South Africa’s wealth distribution remains far from equal,” said the report’s author, Andrew Amoils.

However, Amoils did find that the rate of increase for black millionaires was vastly greater than for millionaires in general, who only increased in number by 14 percent.

South Africans are doing extremely well as millionaires declined by 0.3 percent worldwide in the same period.

South Africa’s 48 700 millionaires have a combined wealth of R2 trillion, accounting for roughly 31 percent of the country’s total individual wealth.

HNWI growth was aided by a rise in new business formation, particularly in the BEE arena.

Over the next four years, the number of South Africa’s millionaire population is expected to grow by 28 percent, reaching more than 62 400 in 2017.
