Today, when you hear people talk about money, from politicians to central bankers, there are a lot of zeros involved. Hundreds, Thousands, Millions, Billions, Trillions… do you know what comes next? Quadrillions.

Rather than look at a single overwhelming number, you can get a better feel by starting with a familiar reference point and then doing a relative comparison. For global asset classes, it does not get much clearer than this infographic created by Jeff Desjardins of the Visual Capitalist.
