4 Traits of the Demi-Billionaire

What’s a demi-billionaire, and what does one look like?

A demi-billionaire has a net worth of $500 million and up. The 2018 WealthEngine Millionaire report identified them as having the following traits:

  • 76.9% of them are business owners.
  • 76.9% are board of director members.
  • 63 years old is the average age.
  • 10.1 is the number of properties they own.

These statistics correspond with the multi-millionaires–36% of them are similarly business owners.

What’s the lesson? I’ve long taught the non-profit world that, if you want to find the most likely opportunity, you’ll find it among the business owners.
