Who's Getting Rich Right Now: Our New Real-Time Billionaires List
Forbes has been chronicling the ups and downs of the richest people on the planet for a quarter of a century, annually publishing the rankings of the 400 richest Americans and the World’s Billionaires.
In recent years, thanks to leaps in technology and the internet, we’ve been updating those figures more frequently while also continuing to enrich and expand our wealth coverage. Over the past year, we’ve built more than 2,000 wealth list profile pages that pull together real-time content, data, and social connections. Today marks another leap forward. For the first time we are now tracking the biggest gains and losses for the public holdings of a select group of 50 high-profile billionaires. The value of the billionaires’ top public holdings, each worth at least $700 million, are updated on a 15-minute delay every five minutes from the time the New York Stock Exchange opens at 9:30 until the market closes.
