The Richest of the Rich

The "balance" of estimates of your assets to around 11 to 12 billion francs.

What many of the richest have in common is the fact that they are not found only in Switzerland. Two in the Top Ten lists, the "balance sheet" for Brazil, the Safra family and the Jorge Lemann. So more people out of the Top Ten in Brazil are found, than the Rich from the Canton of Jura, at all input in the list.

In the past year, the "total estimated" the assets of the two 250 to 300 million Swiss francs. The reason: Trussardi sold 60 percent of his fashion brand. The company was rated far deeper than you think.

the Situation is Different in the case of UBS CEO Sergio Ermotti looks. He is new to the 300 Rich.

The Swiss in the international comparison

With your 54 to 55 billion francs, Kamprad had are undisputed Empire. However, the comparison with the wealthiest in the world shows that It goes significantly richer. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, the swings in the "Forbes"list of The World's Billionaires rose to the top, has 131 billion dollars. The Kamprad had not appear on the list: however, This has to do with the fact that a different calculation is based, which makes a direct comparison difficult.
