The number of Dutch billionaires continues to rise, with 4% of the country’s households at least on paper billionaires in January 2021, the national statistics office CBS said on Monday.
The total – 317,000 – increased by 32,000 over the same period in 2020. Total assets are calculated to include real estate and mortgage liabilities.
According to CBS, billionaires had an average net worth of €1.6 million, while non-billionaires had an average net worth of €75,000. Only 3% of all billionaires have assets over 10 million euros.
About 60% of the primary breadwinners in billionaire households were self-employed. Bankers, farmers and landlords were most likely to have assets above €1 million.
Most millionaires live in Blumendaal and Laren, where real estate prices are among the highest in the country.
According to CBS, the Limburg towns of Kerkrade, Brantham, Landgraaf and Heerlen have the lowest number of billionaires, with just 3% of the population having wealth above €1 million.
