Shishir Baijal, Chairman and Managing Director, Knight Frank India said, ”India with its gradual increase in the number of Ultra High Net Worth Individuals (UHNWIs) has emerged as one of the bright spots in the world economy. Indian UHNWIs are going the extra mile to own their possession of passion may it be high-end ultra luxury residences or jewellery, art and automobiles.”
