  • Billionaires in tech, healthcare, and real estate lost more than 5% of their wealth in 2022.

2022 brought with it the first annual decline in the billionaire population since 2018 (1).

  • Billionaire population fell by 3.5% to 3,194 individuals

  • Total wealth declined by 5.5% to $11.1 trillion

  • This was the second largest annual fall in the past decade, partially due to a double digit surge in 2021
