US investor Warren Buffett tops the list of the biggest 2013 earners, having added $12.7 billion to his wealth, according to a report by the international analyst Wealth-X.

Laurens ten Hagen‘s insight:

 

The 83-year-old head of the Berkshire Hathaway investment vehicle earned $12.7 billion in the year. In January the wealth of the businessman, nicknamed the “Oracle of Omaha” for his phenomenal market intuition and faultless economic forecasts, was estimated at $46.4 billion and by December it had grown to $59.1 billion. Buffett’s fortune increased by about $37 million daily.

 

However, Buffet is still not the richest man in the world, that’s the founder of Microsoft Bill Gates, whose personal wealth is estimated at $72.6 billion. His wealth only increased by $11.5 billion in 2013.
