If true, so what? Even a rudimentary understanding of the word 'important' would prove the ridiculousness of this 'study'.. UHNWI's and 'ordinary' people alike have voted with actual money for SF (and NYC, LA, CHI, DC, Boston, Philly, Dallas, Atlanta, Houston, Seattle, etc etc) over Miami for decades...

The wealthy vote for Miami. It's actually the middle class who are priced out of Miami because there are few jobs here that pay a comfortable middle class wage. This is the land of the rich and the people who serve them. We are America's Monaco, you on the other hand are America's tech center.

That's your spin, but here is the thing, more ultra rich voted for Miami than they did for San Francisco, and dramatically so. This was a rank of "most important cities for the ultra wealthy" not cities where the rich spend vacation, though this is a category, it's not the only one.
Haha no, wealth advisors voted.

Hence why your hype driven ranking might sense, but the title of your thread does not.

Miami might attract vacationing foreign plutocrats( good on you I guess) but rest assured, the entire global economy hangs on what happens in the Bay Area, hence 70+ billionaires anf 5,000+ ultra high net worth individuals actually live in the Bay.

By comparison, you have like the beach.

So confused as to why you appear to be bragging about this.

I don't think anyone else is denying that. Obviously San Fran is a huge economic engine in the tech and venture/startup sector.

Oh man you're really trying. So Miami reached 6th place because of people vacationing here?

Nice try. Give yourself a pat on the back, the rich may prefer Miami, a lot of wealth is made in San Francisco. This is true. The differences between Miami and San Francisco was always beauty and practicality.

The ranking is based on a combination of where they live, their portfolio investments and attitude surveys.

Nice try though, I'm enjoying how hard you're trying
