When it comes to HNWIs, Philadelphia is up 6 percent.

Fear not. It's not a toxic compound or new psychological syndrome. This is a good thing. At least for the HNWIs themselves - High Net Worth Individuals.
According to Forbes, the Philadelphia area beat out even tech mecca San Jose for an increase in folks with "at least $1 million in investable assets," which doesn't count primary homes. By that definition, the 110,400 HNWIs here likely include a share of longtime savers, not just high-income tycoons, star entertainers and athletes.
