Among Indian cities, Mumbai is at the top and Hyderabad has the second largest number of UHNWIs after Mumbai with 467, followed by other cities like Bengaluru (352), Delhi (315), and Chennai (264).

In Bengaluru, the UNHWI population is expected to grow by a whopping 88.9% to 665 by 2026, while Hyderabad is expected to have 728 ultra-wealthy individuals by 2026.
