Millionaires in the Netherlands
Nationally, the average millionaire has a net worth of three million euros. That is 55 times as much as the average non-millionaire. Most of the millionaires live in Amsterdam (6400), followed by The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht. Still, in terms of percentages, the Netherlands' most wealthy don't tend to live in the major cities. For example, 11 per cent of the households in Laren are millionaires while in cities like Blaricum and Bloemendaal, the number is 10 per cent.
