Christopher Polk/Getty ImagesTaylor Swift reportedly has a net worth of more than $US300 million.

Taylor Swift never fails to impress.

At 15 years old, she was the youngest songwriter to ever sign with Sony. She now has 10 Grammys on her shelf, several tours under her belt (including one that generated a staggering quarter of a billion dollars), an endless list of chart-topping songs and albums, and a beloved fan base who dub themselves “Swifties.”

Such success makes Swift one of the world’s highest-paid celebrities and one of the richest female singers.According to Forbes, she has an estimated net worth of $US320 million – and that’s only expected to rise once her current six-month Reputation Stadium Tour wraps up later this year.

Swift has been strategic and generous with her money, investing in a sprawling $US84 million real estate portfolio and often donating it to causes she supports and people in need.

Below, see how Swift earns and spends her fortune.

Swift has had a long-term partnership with Diet Coke since 2013, which has involved her chatting about her love for the drink in a “Bon Appetit” interview and holding the drink while on camera.

Adele and Madonna, who have comparable fan bases to Swift, didn’t put as much effort into brand partnerships and touring as Swift did in 2016 — and only made half of her paycheck, at $US80.5 million and $US76.5 million respectively, according to Quartz.

In fact, aside from brand partnerships and endorsements, touring is Swift’s biggest money maker. Her 1989 tour grossed more than $US250 million in 2015.

She stands to earn even more than that during her current six-month Reputation Stadium Tour that began in May. Five shows in, Swift had already earned $US54 million in sales — that’s $US10.8 million per show.
