As reported by the Credit Suisse Research Institute, the number of millionaires living in Portugal will rise from the current 117.000 to 174.000 by 2024. These are people with more than one million dollars of wealth, which corresponds to about 900.0000€ coming into the country.

The expected growth, which is 49% (equivalent to an additional 57.000 millionaires) pushes Portugal to the top of countries with the highest relative growth rate, only surpassed by Poland (74%), Japan (71%), and China (55 %), making it number two for the world’s most affluent travelers.

According to the Global Wealth Report, the strong appreciation of real estate assets, including houses, explains part of the growth of millionaires in Portugal. The real estate market has appreciated practically worldwide, and Portugal, along with Colombia, Hungary and the Philippines, is in the group that has recorded “robust” growth, between 10% and 13%.

“Currently famous for the Algarve and golf, travelers are starting to wake up to how much more the country has to offer.” - said Tom Barber, co-founder of Original Travel.

Globally, and according to the same report, wealth grew 2.6% in 2018 to $360 billion. The United States of America (US), China and Europe contributed most for the global wealth.

My property advisor, Mathew McGurn, was truly excellent! His knowledge, professionalism and attention to details was much appreciated. He worked hard to not only find a property that fit all my requirements, he negotiated successfully with agents making sure my offer won over other buyers bidding for the same property. In addition, his communication skills, prompt response time and general help with my getting settled in Portugal went above and beyond the normal.

Everyone I met with and spoke with has been extremely knowledgeable and professional. Dealing with native English speakers who understand things from my perspective was very reassuring. Finally, knowing that I had Matthew in my corner gave me the confidence to proceed with the process of buying an apartment in Lisbon. Thanks very much.
