Where the Global 1% Live Now

London, Hong Kong, and New York rank as the top three cities for the ultra-rich, according to the 2012 Wealth Report released by real estate firm Knight Frank and Citi Private Bank.


The report is based on detailed data on the number, distribution, and preferred locations of high net-worth individuals (defined as households with more than $100 million in assets). This is the globe-straddling capitalist over-class that Cynthia Freeland has dubbed the "new global elite," or what the report itself labels the global economic "plutonomy" of the "richest 1%."


There are now 63,000 households worldwide with $100 million or more in assets, up 29 percent since 2006 and projected to rise even higher in the future. The top ten current preferred locations for the ultra-rich are:

  • London
  • New York
  • Hong Kong
  • Paris
  • Singapore
  • Miami
  • Geneva
  • Shanghai
  • Beijing
  • Berlin

The report also asked respondents to predict the most important cities in 10 years.

7 Habits of Remarkably Successful Startup Entrepreneurs

7 Habits of Remarkably Successful Startup Entrepreneurs | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

But look closely and you'll see that in a few ways they are very, very different--and so is how they start and run their businesses.


1. They always prefer action to thinking.


A detailed plan is great, but stuff happens, and most entrepreneurs don't make it past the first three action items before adapting to reality. (I started a company assuming I'd provide book-design services to publishers; I ended up ghostwriting those books instead.)

Spend some time planning and a lot more time doing. If you're unsure, do something, and then react appropriately. It's easy to ponder and evaluate and analyze yourself out of business.

 

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

All successful entrepreneurs may be different from one another--but not in certain key ways.

antonio velardo's curator insight, March 25, 10:26 AM

Tip one I think is most valuable. You have to be intelligent and thoughtful about what you are doing. However, business is about action, about getting things done, providing value to others in a way that they see that it is worth it to pay for this. This is hard to do when you are still thinking about how you can do this. Get out there and get your hands dirty and make some things happen. Learn as you go, be thoughtful and deliberate, and make the changes that need changed as you go.

10 Principles of Organisation Design

10 Principles of Organisation Design | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

A global electronics manufacturer seemed to live in a perpetual state of reorganization. A new line of communication devices for the Asian market required reorienting its sales, marketing, and support functions. Migration to cloud-based business applications called for changes to the IT organization. Altogether, it had reorganized six times in 10 years.


Suddenly, however, the company found itself facing a different challenge. Given the new technologies that had entered its category, and a sea change in customer expectations, it needed a new strategy. The CEO decided to shift from a product-based business model to a customer-centric one. That meant yet another reorganization, but this one would be different. It had to go beyond shifting the lines and boxes in an org chart.

Succession Matters | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

For organizations to succeed, they need to identify, develop, and support the leaders that will drive their future strategy. Effective succession management is therefore essential for continued business success.


But what do executives around the world really think about their succession initiatives? Do they have a view on what best practices should be, and do their organizations follow it? What do they consider to be the benefits of and the barriers to successful succession management?
