Swiss Defend Title Of World’s Richest People

The Swiss are the richest people in the world, with an average wealth of 561,900 dollars per adult, Credit Suisse said in its annual global wealth report on Tuesday.

This confirms Switzerland’s top ranking for the 16th year in a row.

People in the United States trailed with assets worth 344,700 dollars, followed by the British average net worth of 288,800 dollars, the major Swiss bank said in Zurich.

The depreciation of the pound that followed Britain’s vote to leave the EU has wiped out a total 1.5 trillion dollars of the country’s total privately held assets, Credit Suisse noted.

For the first time since the global financial crisis of 2008, the global average wealth per adult stagnated in 2016, at 52,800 dollars.

The report also showed that the share of people’s non-financial assets as part of their household wealth has increased for the first time this year since 2008.

Rising real estate prices have added to private wealth in several countries including Germany, according to the report.

The group of super-rich people, who own at least 50 million dollars, rose by 4,100 individuals to a total of 140,900 over the past year, driven by increases in Asian countries.

Memphis Can Take Manchester United To The Title – Robben

The forward’s Netherlands international team-mate believes that he could “become one of the top players in the world” under the guidance of Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford


New Manchester United star Memphis Depay can become one of the world’s best players and propel the club to trophy glory, according to Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben.

Memphis dazzled Red Devils fans with two goals against Club Brugge in the Champions League qualifier on Tuesday in only his third competitive game since joining the English giants from PSV.

His Netherlands international team-mate feels that working regularly with former Oranje coach Louis van Gaal can only be a good thing for the young forward and says that the Premier League title could be within reach this season.

“He can become one of the top players in the world at Manchester United,” Robben told the Daily Mirror of Memphis.

“He is already at such a high level but, playing at one of the biggest clubs in the world, he will get even better. Manchester United will want to get back to winning trophies and he will be a big part of that.

“I know that there was ­Liverpool and Manchester United ­interested in him but it was an easy decision for him. There would have been no reason for him to join a club not playing in the Champions League and Louis van Gaal is one of the best coaches in the world – Memphis can become the complete player under his guidance.

“It will not be easy – it never is when there are so many new players to settle in – but I think Louis could win the league with Manchester United this year.

“It’s his team now, his players, and, if the new signings settle quickly, I think it’s possible.”
