In 2013, the average adult was worth $51,600 (USD), a record high for the global average. But that paled in comparison to the citizens of Switzerland, as the average Swiss adult was worth nearly ten times as much, or $513,000. And according to the annual wealth report compiled by the Credit Suisse Research Institute, by mid-2014 the average Swiss adult had become even richer. In 2014, the average Swiss adult was worth an astronomical $581,000, which was $150,000 higher than the average person living in Australia, the next richest nation.
The 2014 Credit Suisse mid-year report listed these countries and their average adult wealth to round out the Top 10: Australia ($431,000), Norway ($359,000), United States ($348,000), Sweden ($333,000), France ($317,000), Belgium ($301,000), Denmark and the United Kingdom ($293,000) and Singapore ($290,000).
