Some of the city’s most prominent high-net individuals include former mayor Michael Bloomberg who has a net worth of $94.5 billion, according to Forbes’s real-time wealth index.

Bloomberg made much of his wealth by cofounding his namesake financial information and media company in 1981.  He is joined by New York’s so-called ‘richest woman’ Julia Koch who is worth $56.9 billion after she inherited a 42 percent stake in Koch Industries from her husband David following his death in 2019, aged 79.
