We can’t help but be obsessed with the ultra-wealthy and all the fascinating ways they spend their millions. After all, they’re living a lifestyle that we can only dream of, and they’re making sure to show it off to the world.
But there has been an interesting shift in that trend over the past decade. According to research conducted by a private jet company, billionaires are becoming more discreet about their wealth, and it’s going to change the private aviation industry in the future.
Here are 4 new trends the ultra-wealthy have begun to embrace, and it shows a major shift in their priorities.
Health is wealth
Just because you’re rich, it doesn’t mean that you’re healthy. That’s one thing billionaires are beginning to realize which is why they are investing more time and money in the wellness industry.
In 2015, Vogue claimed that high-end wellness retreats and hospitality offerings have become a symbol of wealth, and businesses are gearing their services towards meeting these demands.
This health consciousness has also affected the way they travel, with more and more billionaires opting for healthy meals on flights instead of more luxurious options.
Less showing off
You aren’t really rich until you show it off to the world, right? Well, at least that’s how it used to be in the past but now billionaires are becoming more discreet about their wealth.
This is showing in their luxury taste as well, according to the research which found that private jets nowadays are employing more timeless designs that are simple and elegant.
It’s time to get personal
Even in an era where everything is digitalized, the trend of face-to-face communication is starting to come back and it is showing in the way billionaires travel.
According to reports, private jet use has increased over the past few years, with more and more businessmen choosing to attend meetings in person.
Investing in people
For years, billionaires have invested money into their own businesses, but now the trend has shifted towards investing in talent and sustainability in order to leave a mark on the world.
Following in the footsteps of Bill Gates and John D. Rockefeller, the ultra-wealthy are now being more conscientious about investing, in order to build a legacy that will live on forever.
