The city also contains 9,700 multi-millionaire permanent residents.
London is followed by New York, which is the pied-à-terre of choice for 17,400 multi-millionaires, and Hong Kong, with 14,800.
Along with Monaco, London and Hong Kong are the most expensive cities on the list for prime real estate.
For the purpose of the study, carried out by NW-Wealth.com, a multi-millionaire was classified as someone with net assets of $10m or more.
