Bloomberg Billionaires Index Doubles

April 25, 2012

Mark Zuckerberg can add another accomplishment to his financial resume — the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.  

The 27-year-old Facebook founder was one of 20 people we added to the list last week as we doubled the number of billionaires we track to rank daily the net-worth figures, of now, the world’s 40 richest people.

Each net worth figure is updated every business day at 5:30 p.m. in New York. The expanded list was published along with the release of the new billionaires profile pages on the Bloomberg Professional service.

Since the beginning of the year, the 40 billionaires have gained a combined $88.2 billion. The combined wealth of the index is $1.1 trillion.  

Zuckerberg, joins George Soros, Michele Ferrero, Karl Albrecht, Prince Alwaleed, Lee Shau Kee, Alisher Usmanov, Lakshmi Mittal, Larry Page, and Cheng Yu-Teng.

Also newly appointed to the list are Georgina Rinehart, Sergey Brin, Alberto Bailleres Gonzalez,  Iris Fontbana, Jeffrey Bezos, Rinat Akhmetov, Vladimir LIsin, Azim Premji and Jorge Paulo Lemann.
