London overtaken in the super-rich league

Tax breaks introduced by Emmanuel Macron and a stronger French economy has lured the world’s ultra-rich to the country’s capital, with Paris now ahead of London for the first time as a top destination for the super-rich.

The sixth edition of the World Ultra Wealth Report, which analyses the state of the world’s ultra wealthy population, or those with $30 million or more in net worth, places Britain now in sixth place and France fifth in the city stakes. New York lost its top spot to Hong Kong, while Tokyo came third and Los Angeles fourth.

Etienne Lefevbre, editor of financial daily Les Echos, said the French president has “effectively halved the tax paid by the very wealthy” while Corinne Dadi, a tax lawyer with Stehlin, said for the first time in 15 years she was organising returns to Paris. Ms Dadi said those wishing to leave London cited “Brexit plus a huge fear of Jeremy Corbyn” and Britain’s decision to slash “non-dom” tax perks.
