Do you ever wonder where the worldâ€™s billionaires live? Do they live in the secluded mountains? By the sea? Or in the hustling bustling cities? When youâ€™ve got a few billion lying around, it's not hard to understand that most prefer the happening metropolitan cities.
The worldâ€™s billionaires are quite nicely spread around the world. In many cases, the wealth of billionaires is closely linked to the places they live in. The number-one global industry for billionaire wealth is fashion and retail, with over $1 trillion, or more than 15 percent of total billionaire wealthâ€”topping finance, tech, and oil and natural resources. Technology is second, with $989 billion or 14 percent of the total, followed closely by finance and investment in third with $962 billion. Resources (i.e. oil, energy, metals, and mining) is fourth at $623 billion and automotive and manufacturing is fifth with $561 billion. Ultimately, the top four industries account for more than half of the worldâ€™s billionaires, and the top five account for 60 percent.
