Are the rich getting richer? A report from Deloitte certainly suggests as much: apparently, the total wealth among millionaire households in the top 25 major economies will be a staggering $202tr (that's £123tr, by today's exchange rates) in 2020 – more than double the $92 trillion the richest are collectively worth this year.  

According to the report, the US and Europe will continue to have the greatest concentration of wealth, despite growing economies in emerging markets. In Britain, the number of millionaires is expected to grow from 2.9m to almost 4m by 2020. That said, in terms of concentration of wealth, we’ll be well behind Hong Kong, where 47% of the population will be worth more than $1m.
