The Forbes 400 edition of the magazine was released today.
The publication releases an annual issue of the magazine that examines the richest people in the country based on their estimated net worth. The combined worth of these 400 people who built their fortune in the U.S. is about $2.7 trillion, up from the $2.4 trillion amassed last year.
There were 169 billionaires who did not make the Forbes 400 due to how many Americans have reached the $1-billion mark. Unsurprisingly, a bulk of the list was made up of tech wizards and bankers.
“America’s richest are richer than ever. The minimum net worth to make the Forbes list of 400 wealthiest Americans is now a record $2 billion,” said Luisa Kroll and Kerry Dolan, assistant managing editors of wealth at Forbes Media.
President Donald Trump came in at number 248 as he’s down $600 million to a net worth of $3.1 billion as the New York retail and office real estate market has suffered a dip. He was no. 156 last year.
Here’s the top 10:
Bill Gates: $89 billion, up $8 billion Jeff Bezos: $81.5 billion, up $14.5 billion Warren Buffett: $78 billion, up $12.5 billion Mark Zuckerberg: $71 billion, up $15.5 billion Larry Ellison: $59 billion, up $9.7 billion. Charles Koch: $48.5 billion, up $6.5 billion David Koch: $48.5 billion, up $6.5 billion Michael Bloomberg: $46.8 billion, up $1.8 billion Larry Page: $44.6 billion, up $6.1 billion Sergey Brin: $43.4 billion, up $5.9 billion
There were 50 women in the top 400, compared to 51 last year.
