SINGAPORE, March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wealth-X, the leading ultra high net worth prospecting, intelligence, and wealth due diligence firm for industry professionals everywhere announced today it has identified nearly 2,500 Billionaires; more than double that of the just released Forbes Global Billionaires list.
Wealth-X, the organization founded by former Forbes employees and which now offers a database of the 75,000 richest people in the world, has achieved this success after years of preparation and millions in investment.
Wealth-X's 2,400 Billionaires are exclusively available to Wealth-X subscribers, including financial institutions, luxury brands, universities, charities, and law firms.
"Unfortunately, the Forbes rich list leaves out substantial numbers of Billionaires each year, and for the first time we are to quantify that nearly 50% of the world's absolute wealthiest individuals go unnoticed," said Mykolas D. Rambus, Chief Executive of Wealth-X. "We are pleased to see so much media attention drawn to the global Billionaires lists, including the growing rivalry between business media outlets. This only helps draw attention to the fact that these lists are incomplete, further increasing the value we offer our clients."
