Written by the Economist Intelligence Unit on behalf of Barclays Wealth, this report examines the relationship between wealth and gender, and explores differences between the attitudes of women and men to wealth matters.
Our first report, The Future of Wealth 2006-2016, emphasised the unprecedented levels of growth in global wealth. A Question of Gender, the second chapter in our Barclays Wealth Insights series, endeavours to bring greater understanding and scholarship to what being wealthy means in the 21st century.
It is based on three main strands of research: a global survey of around 600 affluent, high net worth and ultra high net worth individuals; a series of indepth interviews with experts on wealth and gender; and a number of case studies of leading female entrepreneurs and business women. Our thanks are due to the survey respondents and interviewees for their time and insight.
