The method used to compile the list of the world’s richest people, the Forbes 400 list, includes interviews with list members, their employees, managers, asset managers, financial advisers, rivals, peers, and lawyers. In addition, thousands of Securities and Exchange Commission documents, court documents, probate records, and news articles are analyzed to assess the fortunes of list members.

The list features all types of assets, including holdings in public and private companies, real estate, art, yachts, planes, ranches, vineyards, jewelry, car collections, and more. Debt and charitable donations from list members are also considered. Estimated net values ​​are through September 2, 2022.

To estimate the fortunes of private companies, use a combination of revenue or earnings estimates with price-to-sales, price-earnings, or other similar relationships prevailing for similar public companies, applying a 10% liquidity discount.

Adjustments are also made for VC-backed companies and other companies that have not recently sold shares to investors, expanded on the performance of the sector in which they operate since their last round of funding.
