This Infographic Details the Most Lucrative Industries

 - Jan 6, 2013
When taking the numbers detailing the places in the economy with the biggest profit margins and those with the biggest forecasted growth, one ends up with a list of the most lucrative industries. That is exactly what this infographic sets out to do.

Investment services is number one when it comes to the biggest pre-tax profit margins with just over 16%, followed by dentist offices, credit card accreditation and accounting, tax preparation and similar services. It's interesting to look at those top four industries and point out that all but dentistry has to do with handling money in one way or another. A whole lot of money is made in the business of money.

The biggest forecasted growth is in home healthcare services, which is most likely in part due to the aging population of the baby boomer generation.
