Donald TrumpAPAt age 68, with a net worth of $3.5 billion and living in New York, Donald Trump fits the profile of a typical billionaire.

What does the typical billionaire look like?

In their latest billionaire census, Wealth-X and UBS attempt to answer that question. According to the report, the average billionaire is 63 years old and has a net worth of $3.1 billion. Ninety-three percent of the world's billionaires are over 45 years old.

The average billionaire keeps his wealth in a combination of private and public holdings, typically concentrated in their ownership of privately held businesses. On average, 19% of their net worth is in cash, and 5% can be found in real estate and luxury assets such as yachts and cars.

Male billionaires vastly outnumber female billionaires, by a ratio of seven to one. On average, they are married and predominantly self-made.

Female billionaires are less likely to be married, and roughly 2/3 inherited their wealth. The remainder are either partly or wholly self-made.

Wealth-X expects female billionaires to experience major growth in their mean net worth in the coming years.
