The number of high income earners in Spain, whose assets exceed €30 million, has grown by 23.9% in the last five years, according to 2015 figures released this week by the Spanish tax agency. Spain started to recover from the economic crash five years ago and has made steady progress over the past year with the country recovering at a rate much faster than many of its EU counterparts. However on a more personal level, financial situations have improved faster for those in high-income brackets than those who are not.
Spanish households are investing more and more money in stocks and shares, says the Bank of Spain. The latest figures published by the Bank of Spain reveal that households and non-profit organizations, which provide services for households, own €155.3 billion in shares, reports financial newspaper The Corner.
