Investors Would Sacrifice Wealth for Ten Extra Years

Investors Would Sacrifice Wealth for Ten Extra Years

The very wealthiest investors are spending the most to preserve their health, according to UBS's most recent Investor Watch survey. Annual healthcare expenditures for investors with more than $10 million are four times higher than those of less wealthy investors.

The wealthiest are also more willing to sacrifice wealth for health. In fact, they would part with nearly half of their riches for an extra 10 years of healthy life. This number decreases by asset level, with investors in the $1M – $2M segment willing to give up only about one third of their wealth for a decade of healthy living.
