Written by FDM

Australia has been named the world’s safest country for women according to analysis by consultancy New World Wealth in its 2018 Global Wealth Migration Review.

In the top 10 safest countries in terms of women’s safety, Australia ranks first, followed by Malta, Iceland, New Zealand, Canada, Poland, Monaco, Israel, the United States and South Korea. The ranking is based on the percentage of women who have been victims of serious crime in each country over the past years.

Initially, the New World Wealth report looks at high net worth individuals (HNWI) across the world.However, part of that analysis involves reviewing the safest countries for women. In this sense, the report recalls that “Woman safety is one of the best ways to gauge a country’s long term wealth growth potential, with a correlation of 92% between historic wealth growth and woman safety levels,” the report says.

Thus, “Most of the countries in our top 10 are also popular destinations for migrating HNWIs (high net worth individuals),” says the report. “Also, most of them have experienced strong wealth growth over the past 10-20 years.”

According to the report, the safest countries for women by region are: In Europe: Malta, Poland, Monaco and Iceland; in Asia Pacific: Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Japan and South Korea; In the Middle East: Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Africa: Mauritius, Botswana and Namibia; In the Americas: the United States and Canada. With Sudan, Somalia, Syria and Iraq among the most dangerous.
