Not in every city you can build a fortune. Even if the biggest cities in the US are the most attractive for those willing to do it, you should analyze a series of criteria in order to choose the right one. Houston, Washington DC, Cleveland, Detroit, and New York are the best 5 cities in the country to build a fortune, according to Bankrate. Dallas-Fort Worth, Baltimore, Miami, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Chicago, complete the Top 10.
In order to rank the 18 largest metro areas in the country, Bankrate analyzed after-tax savable income, the job market, human capital (indicating available educational opportunities for career advancement), access to financial services, participation in retirement savings plans, and the local housing market in each city.
