The Richest People On The Planet 2013

Bill Gates is number two on Forbes' list of richest people on the planet. Larry Ellison is number five on the list and the 19th through the 21st spots are occupied by Jeff Bezos, Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Missing from the list again this year....all of us. wink

The ranks of the world’s billionaires, as monitored and tallied by our global wealth team, have yet again reached alltime highs. The 2013 Forbes Billionaires list now boasts 1,426 names, with an aggregate net worth of $5.4 trillion, up from $4.6 trillion. We found 210 new ten-figure fortunes. Once again the U.S. leads the list with 442 billionaires.
