The second edition of the Roy Morgan Wealth Report shows that the value of assets held by Australians has almost doubled from 2007 to 2019 (up 96.0%). This is faster than the increase in debt of 78.6% over the same period. As a result, net wealth is now 98.7% higher in 2019 than it was in 2007. Even after allowing for population growth and inflation, the average Australian is better off. The second edition of the Wealth Report focuses particularly on how net wealth has changed since just before the onset of the global financial crisis. Australia performed very strongly over the past 12 years compared with other OECD nations – particularly in Europe, where many nations went backwards over the same period. The report is drawn from over half a million in-depth face-to-face interviews conducted in Australians’ homes over the period from 2007 to 2019.
