India’s financial capital Mumbai, home to 45,000 millionaires and 28 billionaires, is the wealthiest city in the country with total wealth of USD 820 billion, says a report.

According to New World Wealth, Mumbai is followed by Delhi and Bengaluru at the second and third place respectively.

As per the report, the total wealth held in the country amounts to USD 5.6 trillion (as of June 2016). The country is home to 264,000 millionaires and 95 billionaires in total.

“In particular, the local hospital services and health insurance sectors are expected to grow strongly. Hyderabad, Pune and Bengaluru are expected to lead the pack in terms of wealth growth,” it said.

Millionaires or high net worth individuals (HNWIs) refer to individuals with net assets of USD 1 million or more.
