2016 wasn’t only a year for upsets in the political arena but the financial markets had its fair share of unpredictability which caused some to add piles of money to their already substantial fortunes.
The big wigs who added to their coffers may come as no surprise.
Warren Buffet, American business magnate, added 19% to his personal capital, totalling almost $12 billion.
World’s richest man, former Microsoft mogul, Bill Gates, made nearly $10 billion in 2016, taking his net worth over $90 billion.
Gates and Buffet added more to their piles of cash than anyone else in 2016. Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos was close behind with $8 billion in net worth this year.
On the flip side, Wang Jianlin, China’s second wealthiest person lost $5.8 billion of his fortune.
Aliko Dangote of Nigeria, the richest person in Africa, lost a third of his $15 billion fortune and Saudi prince, Alwaleed Bin Talal Al Saud also lost about $4.9 billion of his wealth.
