19 Billionaires Joined The Forbes 400 List In 2019

Nineteen billionaires joined The Forbes 400 this year, including MacKenzie Bezos (the ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos) and Julia Koch — the widow of David Koch (who died in August).

The billionaires on magazine’s 2019 ranking of the 400 wealthiest people in the United States, (also known as “The Forbes 400”), have a record-breaking, combined total net worth of $2.96 trillion, up 2.2% from 2018.

The average net worth of a Forbes 400 member hit $7.4 billion, also a record high, up from $7.2 billion a year ago.

The minimum net worth now required to be counted among the very wealthiest Americans hit an all-time high of $2.1 billion. Even at these new heights, 19 newcomers made this year’s list.
