Revealed: Billionaires Who Made The Biggest Financial Gains in 2013

18 December 2013

New York, 18 December, 2013 – Warren Buffett made about US$37 million per day in 2013, according to calculations by Wealth-X, making him the billionaire who made the most money this year.



With a gain of US$12.7 billion in 2013, the legendary billionaire investor and notable philanthropist’s net worth at the end of the year stands at US$59.1 billion. That, however, does not make Buffett the wealthiest billionaire on the list. That title goes to Microsoft chairman Bill Gates, who added US$11.5 billion to his personal fortune in 2013, ending the year with assets totaling US$72.6 billion.



In number three spot on the list is American casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who raked in US$11.4 billion in 2013 from his gambling properties in Las Vegas, Macau and Singapore. His personal net worth is estimated to be more than US$35 billion.



The individuals on the top 10 list collectively gained $101.8 billion in 2013, an average gain of US$10.2 billion each. The combined wealth of the 10 individuals now totals US$347 billion, up from US$245 billion in January 2013.



On average, they made US$29 million per day in 2013, and increased their wealth by 41.6 percent, outperforming the 24 percent returns seen in the S&P 500 this year.



Below are the top 10 gainers of 2013:
