Hedge fund managers are buying up remote ranches and land in places like New Zealand to flee to in event of wide-spread civil unrest

Super rich hedge fund managers are buying 'secret boltholes' where they can hideout in the event of civil uprising against growing inequality, it has been claimed.

Nervous financiers from across the globe have begun purchasing landing strips, homes and land in areas such as New Zealand so they can flee should people rise up.

With growing inequality and riots such as those in London in 2011 and in Ferguson and other parts of the USA last year, many financial leaders fear they could become targets for public fury.

Robert Johnson, president of the Institute of New Economic Thinking, told people at the World Economic Forum in Davos that many hedge fund managers were already planning their escapes.

He said: “I know hedge fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway."

Mr Johnson, said the economic situation could soon become intolerable as even in the richest countries inequality was increasing.

His comments were backed up by Stewart Wallis, executive director of the New Economics Foundation, who when asked about the comments told CNBC Africa: "Getaway cars, the airstrips in New Zealand and all that sort of thing, so basically a way to get off.

"If they can get off, onto another planet, some of them would."

If the situation really happened, there would be no safe place for a long time.

Well I always tell people they should consider doing what they need to do to help build the middle class out of sheer survival instincts. History hasn't been too kind to the rich when the gap grows too far.

Until civilization collapses, your wealth means nothing, and suddenly you're the most useless person on the boat.

Then, your ex-SF/Spetznaz/Whatever head of security shoots you in the head and declares himself Captain.

Bullshit. Rich people have been buying remote ranches and private islands ever since there have been rich people. Some dick just needs to bash the rich people for his blog.

Yeah that's more than a bugout vehicle. That's a luxury home on water, with it's own airport and supplies and fuel to be gone for better than a year. Might even have it's own private army.

I'd be doing the same, were I super-rich. Have a secure mansion on a huge property...and oh yeah, what's that in the basement? Oh nothing, just a converted nuclear missile silo.

I am not even rich must less super rich. But, I do live in a remote area well off the beaten path. That is the best I can do, for now.

So in the future there may be a new business opportunity running a tender service to bring fuel and food to these yachts while they stay in international waters.
