Hectomillionaire* households have investable assets of $100 mllion+. Estimates by Boston Consulting Group, reported here by Businessweek.

U.S. 2,300

Japan 1,300

Britain 810

Germany 620

Italy 530

Spain 330

Switzerland 300

France 260

Brazil 210

*Hectomillionaires are also, erroneously, called centimillionaires. The mistake may be due to American unfamiliarity with the metric system, as a Canadian explains here.
