Despite the wealth dominance of Mexican billionaires, they lag Brazil in UHNW population numbers. Brazilian billionaires represent 60% of the UHNW individuals (UHNWIs) on the list compared to Mexican UHNWIs who comprise 30%. Commenting on the list, Wealth-X CEO, Mykolas D. Rambus said, "While most valuations of Latin American wealth are based on family holdings, this list captures the wealth of individuals, resulting in the absence of famous names. For example, Iris Fontbona, a noted UHNWI in Chile, failed to make the list." "We expect to see exponential growth in intergenerational wealth transfers in Latin America as ageing UHNWIs and a tradition of close family connections shape wealth trends in the region," Mr. Rambus added.
