Zurich has replaced Paris to emerge as the favourite city of the ultra rich, according to a new property ranking table.

The Swiss city overtook the French capital which was rated as the most popular city among the megarich last year and dropped down to 7th place in the latest index by London-based real estate consulting firm BARNES International.

New York, which was ranked 2nd place in the previous year, also fell out of favour and only came 11th in the new chart that reflected big changes in the global property market provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Each year, BARNES International, a London-based real estate consulting firm, produced a list of the top 50 cities for high-net-worth individuals in its annual handbook

Each year, BARNES produces a list of the top 50 cities for high-net-worth individuals after compiling and analysing different aspects of every metropolis based on the company’s internal data, according to its handbook.

The rankings are consolidated by various key criteria including education opportunities, levels of taxation and the city’s ecological commitments.

Other indicators included cultural experience, personal safety and proliferation of business. 

The index is specific to a multi-million market that only a small minority of people in the world are able to take part in.

In the BARNES table last year, Paris was rated as the world’s most popular city of the ultra rich, followed by New York at 2nd place.

But the ‘City of Light’ lost its title to Zurich in this year’s ranking table, dropping down to 7th place.  

The Swiss city, which was at 30th place previously, emerged to become the winner of the new table.

Bordeaux in the southwest France made it on the top 50 list for the first time ever.

This was partly due to the coronavirus pandemic which had forced many Parisians to move elsewhere after they were ordered to work from home, a Barnes representative in Bordeaux told French newspaper Le Parisien

In addition to the pandemic, a string of episodes of social turmoil, such as the ‘yellow vest’ movement, also affected Paris’s image internationally in recent years, the French outlet said.
