The majority of the rich are optimistic about their future prospects, even though they admit to taking hits during the recession. According to Mintel's recently published Wealth Management-January 2011 report, more than eight in 10 high-net-worth households (defined as households with at least $500K in investable assets excluding real estate) say they are optimistic about their own financial situation over the next five years.
