The wealthy Dutch

The Dutch are again the world’s fifth richest population Thursday 26 September

2013 The Dutch are the fifth richest population in the world, according to the
latest Global Wealth Report by German insurance group Allianz. Only the Swiss,
Americans, Japanese and Belgians have more assets, the research shows. The
ranking is unchanged from last year.The Dutch have average assets of 68,750 Euros per
head of the population, up 12% on a year ago, Allianz says. Some 64% of this is
held in pensions and insurance policies, more than in any other western
country. At the same time, ˜the share of the population with low financial
assets has quadrupled since the end of 2000, the report states. Net financial
assets are calculated by combining private household assets, including pensions
and annuities, but excluding art and cars, and dividing it by the population,
