Barclays latest wealth survey shows that the London borough became the first area in the country where the average household income was pushed up by the super-rich to more than six figures.
Home to many of the capital's hedge fund managers and private equity buccaneers, average annual household earnings in the borough are £101,600, an increase of 7% over the past year.
In its nearest rival, Westminster, the typical family earned £81,425 a year.
Tatton in Cheshire and the Cotswolds in the south-west – with average household incomes of £62,350 and £60,800 respectively – were the only places outside London and the south-east to make it into the top 20.
