Reference: Bloomberg Launches Global Daily Billionaires Ranking
Direct to Bloomberg World’s Billionaire Index
The Bloomberg Billionaires Index is a daily ranking of the world’s 20 richest people. In calculating net worth, we strive to provide the most transparent estimates available. Each Bloomberg Billionaire profile contains a detailed analysis of how that person’s fortune has been tallied.
The index is a dynamic measure of the world’s wealthy based on changes in markets, the economy and Bloomberg reporting. Each net-worth figure is updated every business day at 5:30 p.m. New York time. Stakes in publicly traded companies are valued using the share’s most recent closing price. All numbers are in U.S. dollars at current exchange rates.
