Where The World's Super-Rich Spend Their Millions On Real Estate [MAP]


JAN. 16, 2014, 11:40 AM 

Wealth-X and Savills are out with a new report showing how the super-rich (those with $30 million or more in assets) spend money on real estate.

There are a ton of interesting takeaways from the report, which is available here

The map below, which shows the flow of wealth around the world, is particularly telling.

 It shows where these ultra-high-net-worth individuals (UHNWIs) are most likely to purchase luxury real estate.

According to the report, "[the map] highlights not only where they like to live but also the geographies and jurisdictions that they might favour for other types of real estate holdings — and other investments — as well. Most notably, when it comes to residencies, UHNWIs may invest crossborder but they will tend to stick to destinations within their global region, to areas they call 'home'."

Some notable trends:

** North Americans are most likely to purchase luxury real estate within the U.S..

** Latin Americans also like the U.S., but will also buy in the Caribbean.

** Europeans are the most diverse buyers: "The more established wealth of Europe seems best versed in the notion of global home-ownership. Not only is Europe itself full of billionaire boltholes but Europeans themselves venture to many luxury island resorts in the Caribbean and the Far East as well as into parts of the US and Canada," the report says.

London dominates when it comes to luxury real estate purchases by the super rich from all over the globe.

Savills and Wealth-X


The following map is also revealing, It shows the total wealth of UHNWIs around the world, and what percent of that wealth is in real estate. 

The super rich in the Europe and the Middle East have a relatively high proportion of their holdings in real estate, while people in the U.S. prefer other forms of investment.


There were nearly 200,000 people worth $30 million or more globally in 2013, with a combined wealth of $27.8 trillion.

 Wealth-X predicts that figure will exceed $40 trillion by 2020.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST

Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.

However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.

Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
