That is up from 63% in 2010, according the report by Bloomberg Intelligence.
The top 1%, which made up 40% of global wealth in 2013, made up more than 90% of all net worth in the U, the report said.
The study also said the richest 1% made $3.6 trillion in 2011.
The top 0.01% made about $6.6 billion.
