Vladimir Putin

Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin (born October 7, 1952) is a Russian politician and former intelligence officer who has served as President of Russia since 2012, having previously served from 2000 to 2008. From 1999 to 2000, and again from 2008 to 2012, he served as Prime Minister.

He spent 16 years in the KGB as a foreign intelligence officer, attaining to the rank of lieutenant colonel (Podpolkovnik) before retiring in 1991 to pursue a political career in Saint Petersburg. In 1996, he relocated to Moscow to join President Boris Yeltsin’s cabinet. Before being named Prime Minister in August 1999, he worked as Director of the Federal Security Service (FSB) and Secretary of the Security Council for a short time. Putin became interim president after Yeltsin’s departure and was elected to his first term as president less than four months later. In 2004, he was re-elected.

Putin is said to be paid $140,000 per year by the Kremlin. An 800-square-foot apartment, a trailer, and three automobiles are among his publicly stated assets. According to several reports, he owns a 190,000 square-foot, $1.4 billion mansion atop a cliff overlooking the Black Sea, 19 houses, 700 cars, 58 aircraft and helicopters, including a $716 million plane called “The Flying Kremlin” with a gold-plated toilet, and a $100 million mega yacht designed by a nuclear submarine maker from the Russian navy.

But according to some experts, he may be the richest politician in the world with assets totaling up to $200 billion.

Michael Bloomberg

Michael Rubens Bloomberg is an American businessman, politician, philanthropist, and author who was born on February 14, 1942. Bloomberg L.P. is his company, and he is the primary owner, co-founder, and CEO. He served as Mayor of New York City from 2002 to 2013, and he ran for President of the United States as a Democrat in 2020.

Bloomberg was chosen as the city’s 108th mayor and the third Jewish mayor in the city’s history. He was first elected in 2001 and served three terms in a row, earning re-election in 2005 and 2009. Bloomberg created a technocratic management style while pursuing socially liberal and economically moderate ideas.

By the end of 2014, he had returned to Bloomberg L.P. as CEO after a brief period as a full-time philanthropist. Bloomberg announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for president of the United States in the 2020 election in November 2019. His campaign came to an end in March 2020, with only 61 delegates elected. Bloomberg’s campaign cost $935 million, breaking the record for the most costly presidential primary campaign in the United States.

Bloomberg was selected to lead the Defense Innovation Board in February 2022. Forbes listed him as the sixteenth-richest person in the world in March 2022, with an estimated net worth of US$70 billion, and 14th in the Forbes 400, with a net value of $55 billion. Bloomberg has donated $8.2 billion to humanitarian causes since signing The Giving Pledge.

Bhumibol Adulyadej

Bhumibol Adulyadej (December 5, 1927 – October 13, 2016) was Thailand’s ninth king, designated Rama IX, and was given the title King Bhumibol the Great in 1987 (formally awarded by King Vajiralongkorn in 2019). He was the world’s longest-reigning current head of state from the death of Emperor Hirohito of Japan in 1989 until his own death in 2016, and he reigned for 70 years and 126 days, making him the second-longest reigning monarch for which specific dates are available. He was serviced by 30 prime ministers during his tenure, starting with Pridi Banomyong and ending with Prayut Chan-o-cha.

The royal household’s and the Crown Property Bureau’s (CPB) post-devaluation fortune is estimated to be worth between $10 and $20 billion. Forbes issued its 2008 edition of The World’s Richest Royals in August 2008, and King Bhumibol was placed first, with a net worth of US$35 billion. A few days later, Thailand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs released a statement claiming that the Forbes story wrongly confused the CPB’s and Bhumibol’s fortune. The Thai government’s complaints were noted in the 2009 Forbes list, but Forbes defended the inclusion of the CPB’s holdings by claiming that the bureau is accountable for the Crown’s property and interests. Due to decreases in real estate and equities, the 2009 estimate was cut to US$30 billion, and this amount was also reported in April 2014 by Business Spectator, which also verified that the CPB is the entity in charge of the Crown’s wealth management.

Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan

Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan (September 7, 1948 – May 13, 2022), the second president of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Abu Dhabi, served from November 2004 until May 20, 2022.

Khalifa bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the first president of the United Arab Emirates, was his father’s eldest son. When his father’s health began to fail in the late 1990s, Khalifa assumed some functions of the presidency in a de facto role as crown prince of Abu Dhabi. On November 2, 2004, he succeeded his father as ruler of Abu Dhabi, and the Federal Supreme Council elected him president of the United Arab Emirates the next day. He brought cultural and intellectual centers to Abu Dhabi as ruler, assisting in the establishment of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, New York University Abu Dhabi, and Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi. Etihad Airways was also founded by him.

Emir of Abu Dhabi, President of the United Arab Emirate, and Sheikh Khalifa are all political titles held by Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan. He is a well-known philanthropist all around the world. When his father passed away, he was given the title of Emir of Abu Dhabi. Obtaining this title instantly elevated him to the position of president. This figurehead is in charge of the world’s second-largest sovereign wealth fund. The fund’s assets have been estimated to be $773 billion.

Hassanal Bolkiah

Hassanal Bolkiah ibni Omar Ali Saifuddien (born 15 July 1946) is Brunei’s 29th Sultan and Yang di-Pertuan, and has served as Prime Minister since the country’s independence from the United Kingdom in 1984. He is one of the world’s remaining absolute rulers. Following his father’s resignation on 5 October 1967, he succeeded to the throne as Sultan of Brunei as the oldest son of Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien III and Raja Isteri (Queen) Pengiran Anak Damit.

Hassanal Bolkiah is said to be one of the richest politicians in the planet. The sultan’s entire peak net worth was assessed to be US$20 billion by Forbes in 2008. The Sultan is the world’s second-longest reigning monarch, after Queen Elizabeth II. The Sultan’s Golden Jubilee, which marked the 50th year of his tenure on the throne, was held on October 5, 2017.

The sultan formerly had one of the world’s greatest private automobile collections, with some 2,500 vehicles purchased by his brother Jefri Bolkiah for himself, the sultan, and other members of the royal family to indulge their automotive love. The automobile collection and Prince Jefri’s other luxuries cost billions of dollars, putting him in financial turmoil and putting the royal family in jeopardy. The automobile collection was abandoned; the majority of the non-garaged cars were beyond repair, and the remaining cars were auctioned.

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (born 15 July 1949) is the UAE’s Vice President and Prime Minister, as well as the country’s Minister of Defense and Ruler of the Emirate of Dubai. After his brother Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum died in 2006, he took over as vice president.

Al Maktoum, a millionaire, makes the most of his money from real estate and is known as “one of the world’s most notable real estate developers.” Land that he owns is handled by the government as a public asset. The border between the assets of the Dubai government and those of the ruling Al Maktoum family is blurred.

Al Maktoum is the absolute ruler of Dubai and Prime Minister of UAE, a position appointed by the president. The government is autocratic, as there are no democratic institutions, and internal dissent is prohibited. It is characterized by scholars as authoritarian.

Al Maktoum has overseen the creation and growth of a number of businesses and economic assets of Dubai, with a number held by two companies under his ownership, Dubai World and Dubai Holding. According to the laws of Dubai, the ruling family owns all undeveloped land in Dubai, which has allowed the family to prosper from real estate development. During Sheikh Mohammed’s rule, Dubai has seen enormous population growth, causing a real estate boom in Dubai.

By order, Al Maktoum founded Dubai World, which began operations on July 2, 2006, as a holding company integrating a variety of properties, including DP World, Nakheel Properties, and Istithmar World. The organization has real estate, logistics, and other commercial assets in the United States, the United Kingdom, and South Africa, and employs more than 50,000 people in more than 100 locations across the world. Dubai’s government owns the corporation.

Mikhail Dmitrievich Prokhorov, a Russian-Israeli oligarch, billionaire, politician, and former owner of the Brooklyn Nets (born 3 May 1965), is a Russian-Israeli oligarch, billionaire, politician, and former owner of the Brooklyn Nets. In the 2012 Russian presidential election, Prokhorov ran as an independent candidate in 2011. He came in third in the voting, with 7.94 percent of the vote. In June 2012, he announced the formation of Civic Platform, a new Russian political party.

Prokhorov said in December 2011 that he will run as an independent in the 2012 presidential elections, capping a year of higher-profile political involvement in Russia. With 7.94 percent of the vote, he came in third place in these elections. In June 2012, he announced the formation of the “Party of Civic Platform,” a new political party. In June 2011, he resigned as Chairman of Polyus Gold and President of the ONEXIM Group to pursue a political career.

Prokhorov agreed to sell 7% of Rusal to fellow billionaire Viktor Vekselberg for $503.9 million in August 2017. Prokhorov sold 3.3 percent via an expedited bookbinding earlier this year, halting talks between the two.

Prokhorov and Viktor Vekselberg sold 3% of Rusal for $315 million in an expedited bookbuilding transaction in October 2017. Prokhorov’s interest in the firm was decreased to 6% following the sale of his 0.7% investment.

Bloomberg Billionaires Index puts him as the 148th richest person in the world as of December 1, 2021, but Forbes Magazine lists him as the 193rd richest politician in the world with a net worth of US$11.5 billion.

He was a member of the Chamber of Deputies from 1994 to 2013 and has served as a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) since 2019, and previously from 1999 to 2001.

Berlusconi was Italy’s Prime Minister for nine years, making him the country’s longest-serving postwar leader and the third-longest since the country’s unification, behind Benito Mussolini and Giovanni Giolitti. From 1994 to 2009, he was the head of the center-right party Forza Italia, and from 2009 to 2013, he led the successor party The People of Freedom. He has been the leader of a resurgent Forza Italia since November 2013.

Following the 2013 general election, he was elected to the Senate after nearly 19 years as a member of the Chamber of Deputies, Italy’s lower chamber.

Berlusconi is the majority stakeholder in Mediaset and was the owner of AC Milan, an Italian football club, from 1986 until 2017. For his Order of Merit for Labor, he is known as Il Cavaliere (The Knight), albeit he voluntarily withdrew from the order in March 2014. With an estimated net worth of $8 billion, Forbes magazine listed him as the 190th wealthiest man in the planet in 2018. Due to his dominance of Italian politics for more than two decades as the leader of the center-right alliance, Forbes rated him 12th on the List of The World’s Most Powerful People in 2009.

Donald Trump

Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American politician, media personality, and businessman who served as the United States’ 45th president from 2017 to 2021.

Trump earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School in 1968. In 1971, he took over as president of his father Fred Trump’s real estate company, renaming it The Trump Organization. Trump extended his business to include the construction and renovation of buildings, hotels, casinos, and golf courses. Later, he began side businesses, largely by licensing his name. He co-produced and hosted the reality television series The Apprentice from 2004 to 2015. More than 4,000 state and federal court proceedings have been filed against Trump and his enterprises, including six bankruptcies.

Populist, protectionist, isolationist, and nationalist have all been used to define Trump’s political stances. He defeated Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton in the 2016 US presidential election as the Republican nominee, although losing the popular vote, and became the first president of the United States with no prior military or government experience. Protests erupted in response to his election and policies. The special counsel investigation undertaken by Robert Mueller from 2017 to 2019 found that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help the Trump campaign, but not that Trump campaign members collaborated or coordinated with Russia.

Donald Trump has a net worth of $3 billion, which includes $960 million in New York City real estate, $730 million in golf clubs and resorts, $480 million in social media and brand enterprises, $450 million in cash and personal assets, and $340 million in non-New York City real estate.
