Enabling access to markets can help reduce inequality

Enabling access to markets can help reduce inequality

Summary

Growing wealth inequality around the world has been exacerbated by rising income inequality – including a divide in who earns income from assets and investments. To reduce the widening gap between rich and poor, mid- and low-income earners should gain more exposure to the “risk premium” offered by financial markets.

Key takeaways

  • The top 1% of the population owns 34% of the total wealth in the US and 24% in Europe
  • The wealthier are more willing (and able) to take equity-market risk – and the performance of financial markets shows that over time, it has paid to take risk
  • Enabling participation in the financial markets could help arrest the widening inequality gap
