Of this total, there were 108 billionaires, 643 centimillionaires and 567 affluent millionaires. UHNWIs accounted for just under 1% of the total HNWI population of Russia in 2013, slightly higher than the global average of 0.7%. During the review period, the number of UHNWIs in Russia increased by 118%, from 603 in 2009 to 1,318 in 2013. There was a range of performance between the different UHNWI wealth bands; the number of billionaires increased by 208%, while the number of centmillionaires and affluent millionaires increased by 110% and 115% respectively. WealthInsight expects the number of UHNWIs to increase by 5%, to reach 1,399 in 2018. This will include 125 billionaires, 680 centimillionaires and 594 affluent millionaires.
