Israel has about 131,000 millionaires, and its population is getting wealthier quickly, according to a Monday report from the Swiss banking firm Credit Suisse.

Israel ranks 23rd worldwide in its total number of millionaires, and by 2024 is expected to have 173,000 millionaires, representing a growth rate of 32 percent, the annual Global Wealth Report found.

The report surveyed worldwide wealth from mid-2018 to mid-2019.

The total number of Israeli millionaires is relatively high, placing the Jewish state slightly below more populous countries including Brazil and Poland, although some states with fewer people, including Norway, Switzerland and Hong Kong, had more millionaires.

The 32% expected growth rate put Israel in the middle of the pack for wealthy countries.

Israelis gained wealth at a higher rate than almost any other country, ranking 7th with an average gain per adult of around $5,000. The report noted, however, that average wealth in Israel relative to its GDP had grown more slowly than expected.

Net worth, or wealth, is defined by the report as the value of financial assets plus real assets, mainly housing, owned by a household, minus its debts.

The worldโ€™s 46.8 million millionaires hold 44% of global wealth, the report said.

The US accounts for 40% of all millionaires worldwide, with a total of 18.6 million. China ranks second with 4.4 million.

Worldwide wealth grew in the last year, but growth was modest, with global wealth rising by $9.1 trillion to $360.6 trillion, representing a 2.6% growth rate.

There were 1.1 million new millionaires, with 675,000 of those in the US.

Wealth per adult was at a record-high of $70,850 and nearly 1% of all adults are millionaires, although over half of all adults have less than $10,000.

Inequality is still widespread, with the poorer half of the population holding less than 1% of total global wealth, while the richest 10% own 82%, and the top 1% holds 45%. Inequality had decreased slightly from a peak in 2016, though.
