The global market research group, based in Johannesburg, released a study on the movements of the richest men and women.

The report said: ‘Woman safety is one of the best ways to gauge a country’s long-term wealth growth potential, with a correlation of over 90% between historic wealth growth and woman safety levels.
‘This means that wealth growth is boosted by strong levels of woman safety in a country.’
