For more than a quarter of a century, Forbes has been tracking the fortunes of the richest people on the planet, annually publishing the rankings of the 400 Richest Americans and the World’s Billionaires. In recent years, thanks to improvements in technology and the Internet, we’ve been updating those figures more frequently while also continuing to enhance and expand our wealth coverage. In 2012, we launched real-time billionaires, which tracked daily changes in the value of three top listed holdings of a handpicked group of high profile billionaires. Now we’re taking another huge leap forward, for the first time ever updating the fortunes – and ranks- of more than 1,600 billionaires on a daily basis.
Four in five high-net-worth individuals in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the United States see an “urgent” or “extremely urgent” need for philanthropic giving worldwide, a report from PNB Paribas Wealth Management and Forbes Insights finds.
Based on a survey of more than four hundred high-net-worth individuals, the 2014 PNB Paribas Individual Philanthropy Index (32 pages, PDF) found that 56 percent of respondents viewed the need for philanthropy as “extremely urgent” — including 64 percent of those in the U.S. and 61 percent in the Middle East — while 23 percent viewed it as “urgent.” The survey also found that U.S. respondents considered health to be the most urgent global issue in need of funding, while respondents in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East cited the environment. When asked specifically about needs in their own countries, 67 percent of U.S. respondents and 65 percent of those in the Middle East said the need for philanthropy was “extremely urgent,” compared with 41 percent in Asia and 39 percent in Europe.
