The wealthiest one percent owned 42.5 percent of global wealth in 2008, the bank reports.
“The downward trend reversed after 2008 and the share of the top one percent has been on an upward path ever since, passing the 2000 level in 2013 and achieving new peaks every year thereafter. According to our latest estimates, the top one percent own 50.1 percent of all household wealth in the world,” the report said.
“Global wealth inequality has certainly been high and rising in the post-crisis period,” according to the bank.
While the bottom half of adults collectively own less than one percent of total wealth, the richest ten percent owns 88 percent of global assets.
Last year saw 2.3 million people becoming new dollar millionaires. The total number of millionaires has increased to 36 million. “The number of millionaires, which fell in 2008, recovered fast after the financial crisis, and is now nearly three times the 2000 figure,” Credit Suisse said.
The poorest 3.5 billion people, who account for 70 percent of the working age population, each earn less than $10,000 and account for just 2.7 percent of global wealth.

Global wealth now stands at $280 trillion, and this figure is likely to be over $340 trillion in five years. On average, each adult owns $56,540.
You need to own $76,754 to be a member of the top 10 percent of global wealth holders and $770,368 to belong to the top one percent.
After you read those official figures, bare in mind that these are ONLY OFFICIAL amounts of money we are talking about. There are also powerful globalists such as the Rothschilds, Rockefellons and others who UNOFFICIALLY they gave trillions in wealth. These rats do not even appear in Forbes, the smaller elites try to keep them hidden from the public because if the masses knew, they would probably be lynched…
For example the entire Rothschild family is estimated to own at least $2 Trillion at the very minimum estimates. However more realistic estimates evaluate their wealth at about $500 Trillion, almost nearing $1 Quadrillion now as of 2017. And there are many other families like these which are kept hidden in the shadows.
They could feed the entire planet for at least 100 years with their money… greed? Naaah pure Satanism! No normal or Godly man would hold on to such large unimaginable amounts of money throughout multiple generations, from father to son to nephew and so on.
