There are 12 million people on the planet that had investible assets of more than $1 million dollars.

Collectively, this group controls $46.2 trillion dollars (2012).

A quarter of them live in America (3.4m); followed by almost a sixth in Japan (1.9m) and a twelfth in Germany (over 1m). China and Great Britain round out the top 5.
