The World's 10 Richest People - September 14th, 2005

The rich had a very good year......

The collective net worth of the 691 billionaires we could find is $2.2 trillion, up $300 billion from the combined worth of the 587 people listed last year. Every region saw gains. The world’s richest moguls now hail from 47 countries, including, for the first time, Kazakhstan, Poland, Ukraine and even Iceland. The newcomers include 69 Americans and 38 Europeans. More than half of them are entirely self-made.The top ten are as below;



William Bill Gates III- $46.5 billion- World’s richest man barely held on to top spot as Microsoft stock flatlines.

Warren Buffett- $44 billion- Oracle of Omaha built his fortune on value investing. Now Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway is set to become the largest shareholder in Procter & Gamble when the consumer products giant merges with Gillette.

Lakshmi Mittal- $25 billion- Steel titan’s net worth rose $18.8 billion in the past 12 months thanks to a blockbuster deal creating world’s largest steel company.

Carlos Slim Helu- $23.8 billion- Latin America’s richest resident considered buying MCI until Verizon beat him to the punch. Slim’s not stewing. His telecom fortune rose $10 billion last year thanks to new business in Mexico.

Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud- $23.7 billion- Booming Saudi stock market lifted his portfolio, which includes big stake in Citigroup. He even bought airtime on CNN to crow about it.

Ingvar Kamprad- $23 billion- His Ikea stores furnish dorm rooms everywhere for the hip and cost-conscious. Cultlike following: store openings draw huge sometimes unruly crowds.

Paul Allen- $21 billion- Microsoft co-founder was the major sponsor behind SpaceShipOne, first private-venture aircraft to be launched into space.

Karl Albrecht- $18.5 billion- Turned his mother’s corner grocery into supermarket giant Aldi. The fiercely private German spends time raising orchids.

Lawrence Ellison- $18.4 billion- After an 18-month takeover battle, Oracle chief finally pulled off $10 billion merger with rival PeopleSoft, largest merger in software history. Hopes to win yachting’s America’s Cup in 2007.

S Robson Walton- $18.3 billion- Eldest son of Sam Walton is Wal-Mart chairman. After a dip in Wal-Mart’s share price, he’s the only Walton to land among our 10 richest.
