A new report by Wealth-X tracks where the ultra-wealthy have homes, whether it’s their primary residence, second or third homes.

In two indexes, the report notes the cities where you’re most likely to rub shoulders with the ultra wealthy, such a Monaco where the density of the rich is at its peak, and the places where the wealthy buy the most real estate — spoiler, New York’s in the lead.

Here’s a look at the every move of the global ultra-wealthy according to sheer numbers and density.
