The Richest Financiers In The World

Bloomberg Markets Magazine just published the findings of the organisation’s tireless billionaire hunters — a list of the 100 richest people in the world.

This year, there are nine financiers that made the cut, meaning that a few familiar names were lopped off.

It’s been a volatile year in finance, after all.

Abigail Johnson of Fidelity didn’t make the cut this year, while Carl Icahn’s fortune jumped a whopping 24%.

The Heinz deal has worked out very well for Warren Buffet and 3G Capital’s Jorge Paulo Lemann, whose wealth rose by 22% and 14% respectively.
