Stats Gate

Richest Billionaires in Each Country, 2024

Elon Musk

As of June 11, 2024, with a net worth of roughly $204.4 billion, Elon Musk is the wealthiest person in the United States. Meanwhile, Zhong Shanshan is the richest person in China, with a net worth of $60.2 billion. At the same time, in India, Mukesh Ambani holds the crown with a net worth of $115.1 billion.

CEOWORLD magazine has published a list of the world’s wealthiest people by net worth in the year 2024. The list includes 2,537 billionaires from 79 countries and territories. The United States has the highest number of billionaires on the list, with 746, followed by China with 373. This is not surprising, as the US has always been a leader in innovation, invention, and entrepreneurship. China is an obvious second in billionaire wealth to the United States, with famous billionaires like Zhong Shanshan, Zhang Yiming, William Ding, Ma Huateng, Colin Huang, and Jack Ma.

The ultra-rich are everywhere: Billionaire status is determined by assessing an individual’s total net worth, including publicly and privately held businesses and investable assets. To determine a billionaire’s location, CEOWORLD magazine used its primary business address.

Billionaires by Country: Even if you cannot be the richest person in the world, it is still pretty cool to be the richest person in your country. Many billionaires have held the title of richest in their country for a number of years, but as always, there are a number of new titleholders this week.

The Richest of the Rich: Here is a breakdown of the wealthiest individuals in various countries across the globe. The table below lists the richest person in each country and their corresponding net worth.
