Richest 1 percent owns 46 percent of global wealth - Credit Suisse
Average global wealth has hit a peak of $51,600 per adult but this is spread very unevenly, with the richest 10 percent owning 86 percent of the wealth, analysts at the Credit Suisse Research Institute said.
The top 1 percent alone own 46 percent of all global assets.
Global wealth will jump a further 40 percent by 2018 to reach $334 trillion, the report added.
The richest nations, with wealth per adult of more than $100,000, are concentrated in North America, Western Europe and among the rich Asia-Pacific and Middle Eastern countries.
