It was harder than ever to join The Forbes 400 in 2018. The price of entry this year was $1.7 billion, the highest it’s been in the 36 years that Forbes has tracked American wealth. Last year you had to have $1.55 billion to make the cut. Because the bar is so high, 175 U.S. billionaires missed the list.
Jeff Bezos is the richest American and the 'Richest Person in the World' for the first time. With $142 billion, he is the first person to break the $100 billion mark, passing Bill Gates who held the top spot for 22 years and is now in 2nd place with a net worth of $92 billion. His stake in Microsoft, which he cofounded 47 years ago, now accounts for just under 13% of his fortune. His friend Warren Buffett, chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway, occupies the number thre spot on The Forbes 400, now rebranded, The 400, and has held the position since 2001, with a net worth of $82 billion.
Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, who started with $15 billion with the IPO of Facebook, comes in at 4th place with $80 billion.
Larry Page, co-founder of Google, comes in at number five, with a net worth of $58 billion.
Altogether the 400 wealthiest Americans are worth $2.34 trillion, up $50 billion from a year ago. The average net worth of list members is $5.8 billion, $100 million more than last year and a record high. About half - 202 of the 400 - are worth more now than they were a year ago, while 119 people from last year’s list had lower net worths this year. Thirty-five people fell off the list; another four died, including Subway sandwich chain cofounder and CEO Fred DeLuca.
There are 25 newcomers to The Forbes 400, including Evan Spiegel, the youngest person in the ranks, and the youngest billionaire in the world. Just 25 years old, the Stanford University graduate cofounded mobile messaging app SnapChat with Bobby Murphy, also a newcomer. Snapchat has been valued by investors at $16 billion. Other newcomers include private equity titan Robert Smith, the second-richest African-American, after Oprah Winfrey; and the three cofounders of rental-accommodations service Airbnb: Nathan Blecharczyk, Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia.
Surging tech stocks upended ranks near the stratosphere of The Forbes 400 list of the Richest Americans this year. Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg both zoomed into the top 10 richest for the first time, just three years ago.
The estimates shown here are part of the Forbes 400 Wealthiest Americans List for 2017 releashed in September 2017. The estimates are a snapshot of the wealthiest Americans’ net worth on Sept. 11, when Forbes locks in numbers and rankings. Some of The Forbes 400 become richer or poorer within weeks, even days, of publication. Forbes tracks those changes online at Forbes.com/forbes-400.
