Bloomberg Worlds Richest People Interactive 1

Have you ever wondered where the richest people in the world get their money? Have you ever been curious about what country holds the most of these ultra-rich?

Excitingly, the Bloomberg interactive is full of ways to customize the way you look at the data they present – from a headshot based chart to a world map with each individuals location. All visuals are sortable based on factors like their country of citizenship, sex, source of income and the industry they are associated with. Additionally, each person has a portfolio analysis where you can see a net worth summery, list of notable possessions and an overview of personal details (did you know the richest man in the world doesn’t have a computer???).

Overall the slick graphic is a veritable who’s who of the ultra-rich world and one which will test your abilities to identify each famous person.
