How was the rating considered
Forbes is not the first decade to evaluate the largest state of the world. For this, the magazine uses a specially developed technique, the basis of which is as follows:
1. Our assessment of the state of the entrepreneur is the value of his assets: shares of companies, land, real estate, as well as personal property, etc.
2. All public companies are valued at market capitalization. Closed companies are evaluated on the basis of information on sales volumes, profits, equity, and comparisons are made with similar companies trading on the stock exchange or, in the recent past, the former object of sale. We try to be conservative and evaluate the property of entrepreneurs on the principle of "at least not cheaper."
3. In this list, the price of companies is fixed as of February 14, 2012. The age of the list is indicated on April 19, 2012.
4. Russian entrepreneurs often record the shares of their enterprises on the next of kin. Given this circumstance, Forbes ascribes all the assets that the family of entrepreneurs disposes to the head of the family - if the relatives do not actively participate in the management of the company, which they are co-owners.
5. The list includes only those citizens of Russia who have earned the bulk of their capital privately, without being a civil servant.
6. The list includes only 200 of the richest businessmen in Russia, the lower rating bar is $ 450 million. If you did not find any of the well-known entrepreneurs in the list, then Forbes estimates his condition at less than $ 450 million.
The information provided in the Forbes ranking is an expert and journalistic assessment of the total amount of ownership of property by these persons.This information is not official and can only be used privately.
Top 10 richest people on the planet
Changes in top 10 Forbes, as usual, the most important and attract the maximum attention. These people are closely watched by the world press and the public: the main rich people of the planet literally look into their mouths, expecting what they will say or do. But, as always, here many positions remained unchanged compared to the previous year: in the first place the Mexican multi-tycoon majestically rises Carlos Slim Elu, on the second - the founder and largest shareholder of Microsoft Bill Gates, the third is an elderly American investor Warren Buffett, on the fourth - the head of the world Luxury, French Bernard Arnault. Further interesting: on the two lines from last year's seventh place went up the owner of the Zara network, the Spaniard Amancio Ortegabut the sixth place was lost by the Indian mining tycoon Lakshmi Mittalhaving flown out already beyond twenty. On the sixth line now Larry allison, head of Oracle, and in the seventh - Brazilian oilman Eike Batistathreatening to conquer the whole world and become the main rich. So far, apparently, it does not work out.
From the unlucky thirteenth place Forbes rankinghaving won as many as five positions, the owner of the Swedish H&M network rose Stefan Persson, and on the ninth line was the richest Chinese - a native of Hong Kong Lee Ka Shing. Closes the ten Karl Albrecht, head of the German industrial concern Aldi (not to be confused with Audi!)
Total on top ten Forbes ranking accounts for: one Mexican, three US residents, four Europeans (France-Spain-Sweden-Germany), one Brazilian and one Chinese.
Of top 10 Forbes in addition to the metallurgist Mittal, another Indian went away - Mukesh Ambanidealing with oil and gas. A Canadian businessman also experienced a severe fall David thomsondescended from 17th place to the 35th and Russian industrialist Vladimir Lisinwho has lost 27 positions and title the richest citizen of Russia. Now it, like a rolling banner, has been entrenched in Alisher Usmanov, in recent years, competently diversifying their income.
Rating of the richest people in Russia 2012
Generally among Russian billionaires strong movements occurred in Forbes list, and for the most part in the negative direction: representatives of ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy experienced the most severe decline. Victor Rashnikov lost half his fortune and as many as 113 lines of the rating, Igor Zyuzin also dropped by more than 100 positions, going beyond the considered 200 richest in the world. Destroyed the fate of the aluminum king Oleg Deripaska and the "Golden Prince" Mikhail Prokhorovwalked through wallets Alexey Mordashov and Roman Abramovich. But the representatives of the oil and gas industry rose a lot: almost twice as rich Gennady Timchenkoraising almost a hundred lines of the rating, the oil tycoon appeared in the field of vision Mikhail Gutseriev, strengthened its position by 27 specializing in gas Leonid Mikhelson. The same Usmanov, having adjusted his affairs by only half a billion, overtook four competitors and broke into first place Russian Forbes rating.
Who got the most wealth and who lost the most in 2012?
In other countries, it’s as if they hadn’t heard of oil: an elderly Brazilian Antonio Ermirio de Moraes It has diversified income associated with trade, for the year rose by 126 lines of the rating, and now occupies the 67th position. American Harold Simmons engaged in investment and, apparently, successfully enough to overtake 79 billionaires in a year and take the hundredth position in Forbes ranking. Retail, media, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, and fashionable clothes: all this brought in abundant incomes and allowed their owners to improve their situation in Forbes list for 50-70 lines.
Considerable the number of billionaires in 2012 noticeably poorer: in addition to Russian industrialists, Germans, British, Indians and immigrants from other countries lost their positions. Builder Nasser al-Harafi left Kuwait 77th place and left first two hundred rating, thus making a fall of more than 125 positions. The number of those who left two hundred was 25 people, that is 12.5%. First hundred forbes 11 people left, that is, the percentage of outsiders is 11%. IKEA owner experiences the biggest drop in two years Ingvar Kamprad: in 2010, he was 11th in Forbes list (fifth year earlier), in 2011 it was already 162nd, and in 2012 it completely went beyond the first two hundred. The wealthiest Swede has declined from $ 23 billion to less than $ 3 billion, or almost 8 times.
The richest people in the world
The largest number of billionaires, traditionally, in the USA: among the first two hundred lines of the rating of immigrants from the states are 62 people (31%), and their total capital almost reaches a crazy trillion dollars.
Russia takes an honorable second place: 24 dollar billionaires among the first two hundred Forbes. Total capital is a little less than a quarter of a trillion dollars.
In third place, China, if you do not separate it from Hong Kong, is 14 members of the list (7%) with a total capital of 145 billion dollars.
Next comes Germany with 12 billionaires (6%) with a total weight of 137 billion dollars, India with 11 people and a total capital of 120 billion, followed by Brazil, Italy and France. The remaining countries have less than 5 representatives among the first two hundred members of the Forbes list.
The age of the richest people in the world
Oldest Forbes members - american Anne Cox Chambers and representative of Saudi Arabia Suleiman Al Raji. In 2012, they turned 93 years old. The creator of the social network Facebook remains the youngest rich Mark Zuckerberg, which in 2012 turned 28 years old. Former once the youngest members of the Forbes ranking Google co-owners Sergey Brin and Larry Page 11 years older than him and in 2013 they will be forty years old.
Average age of rating participants - 66 years, and in Russia this indicator, as before, deviates towards young entrepreneurs: average age of Russian billionaires - 52 years old.
