Looking through the cash flows of these 10 wealthiest world leaders cleared up a few surprises, but kings are all doing just fine as you would expect.
Most folks have a fairly good idea, even if they aren’t investors or are at all interested in the subject.
You undoubtedly already have names coming up in your head as you peruse this about who will be on the list of the richest world leaders.
In this article, let’s find out where we are listing the world’s top ten richest leaders as of 2020. These are the game-changers, and the people who helped transform the world and re-shape it.
10. Qaboos bin Said al Said, Net worth – $700 million
The Sultan of Oman was Qaboos bin Said Al Said from July 23, 1970 till his death. A fourteenth-generation descendant of the House of Al Said founder, he were at the time of his death the longest-serving leader in the Middle East and the Arab world.
Qaboos maintains an unregulated absolute monarchy, and its bank accounts show this. Fun fact: after training at Sandhurst, he was a part of the British Army, temporarily.
9. Nursultan Nazarbayev, Net worth – $1 billion President of Kazakhstan
The President of Kazakhstan has been in power since before the fall of the Soviet Union. Alas, he’s faced “corruption allegations.” I. ARE. SHOCKED. Here he slips a hundred-dollar bill into the hand of Brazil’s president.
8. Albert II, Net worth – $1 billion Prince of Monaco
This Prince and Princess Grace’s half-American son also had some significant Michael Caine vibes. He also owns Monaco and is the tragic namesake of a very traumatic-looking genital piercing process.
7. Mohammed VI, net worth – $2.5 billion King of Morocco
Mohammed VI is Morocco’s King. He is an Alaouite dynasty member and succeeded to the throne on July 23, 1999, when his father, King Hassan II, died.
This cherubic king, who is also close with the Prime Minister of Brazil, is among the leading entrepreneurs in Morocco!
The Wikileaks cables that came down years ago didn’t describe the relationship here between the company of the king and the rule of the king.
6. Hans-Adam II, Net worth – $4 billion Prince of Liechtenstein
The tall man is the richest leader in Europe. He runs a banking company and has a huge collection of art in the museum, which is his since he’s king.
In his prime, he had some great hair and insists that democracy is the best form of government, which seems like a dispute.
5. Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Net worth – $4 billion Prime Minister UAE
Using the same, sweet money from oil, that man turned Dubai into the strange Middle Eastern Vegas it is currently. He owns 99.6 percent of the parent company running it, so he’s doing pretty good.
He has up to 23 “officially recognized” kids and his widely-known “junior wife “— this is a genuine thing — was Jordan’s daughter’s King Hussein. He has one yacht fire, called” Dubai.
4. Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Net worth – $15 billion President UAE
As “leader,” the most remarkable of Khalifa is likely to have the Wikipedia editors from the first paragraph to have his charitable contributions ($460 million).
For his $622 million megayachts, we recognize him, but yeah, occasionally people like to treat themselves?
3. Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Net worth – $18 billion King of Saudi Arabia
Since 23 January 2015, Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has been Saudi Arabia’s leader and prime minister, and custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.
He was Riyadh’s deputy governor, and then Riyadh’s governor for 48 years from 1963 to 2011.
Though he’s approaching 80, since his half-brother just died, he’s not been king for a while. All his cash depends on oil, as a member of the Sadu House. He is expected to keep a bad record on human rights for his uncle.
2. Hassanal Bolkiah, Net worth – $20 billion Sultan of Brunei
It’s a little simpler to be one of the richest men in the world when you are a sultan because you can make a distinction between public and personal assets.
He has the largest private residence in the world (1,800 rooms), which boasts of fine cigars, and flies his own 747-400.
He has a genuine collection of cars, including exclusively for him vehicles made by Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, and Bugatti. He may have had an American sex slave, as well.
1. Bhumibol Adulyadej, Net worth – $30 billion King of Thailand
The man Barack Obama reads to is the world’s richest leader He is actually the longest-tenured head of government and in his state (well, so does Kim Jong-Un) has a strong reputation.
He has a separate fund that is not private or the public that controls his capital, and they do. He enjoys music, weapons, and sailing.
Thailand was a bit annoyed when Forbes judged his fortune, but they remained by their numbers. Because his earnings are legally confidential, all we have is this.
