Richest Floridians: The Top 25

Florida Trend asked Wealth-X, a wealth research firm in Singapore, to identify the 25 richest Floridians. Wealth-X used its proprietary analytics on publicly available information to arrive at the list of ultra high net worth individuals in Florida’s major cities.

» It took more than a mere $1 billion to be among the 25 richest Floridians.
No. 25 on the list had a net worth of at least $200 million more than that.

» Together, the top 25 are worth more than $63 billion.

» Most of the 25 richest Floridians made their money elsewhere. To Florida’s loss, they are generally loyal to their roots when it comes to major philanthropy.

» Six have no higher academic credential than a high school diploma. Five are Ivy Leaguers.

» All are men. Most are self-made, though some of them had a rougher start in life than others. We focus below on the their impact in Florida — to the extent there is a substantial one.
