Wealth research and insight firmWealth-X recently released its annual Billionaire Census — a report identifying and analyzing the different trends and behaviors of the world’s 2,473 billionaires, including the most common hobbies and the regions of the world that play host to the most tycoons.

Europe is home to the most billionaires with 806, followed by Asia (645) and North America (628).

But at $2.56 trillion, North America’s uber-wealthy are the richest — thanks in part to Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates, who is still the wealthiest person on the planet, with a net worth of $77.1 billion.

Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East, Africa, and the Pacific each are home to titans of industry with eye-popping fortunes in their own right, and Wealth-X identified the richest from each region.

Read on to learn about the wealthiest person in every part of the globe.
