Donald Trump’s wealthiest supporters haven’t benefited as much as the stock market in the wake of his election.

Twenty-four donors on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, who federal records show collectively gave $29.3 million to the Trump campaign and related political groups, have seen their fortunes rise 0.6 percent since the Nov. 8 vote. That compares with a 14.6 percent gain for the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index in the same period through Tuesday.
