The number of dollar millionaires in the Czech Republic has reached 21,400, which is about a tenth more than in the previous year, according to figures released by Capgemini and RBC Wealth Management on Wednesday. The wealth of dollar millionaires around the world increased by seven percent and reached a record 56.4 US dollars. The number of Czech dollar millionaires is growing faster than in the rest of the world due to the country’s increasing GDP, state savings and record high foreign trade surplus, according to the head of the Czech branch of Capgemini Zdeněk Přibyl. One million US dollars currently amounts to around 24.2 million crowns.
