Saudi Prince Cutting Ties With Forbes Because They Said He’s Only Worth $20 Billion. Says He’s Worth At Least 30.
DM – A Saudi prince has claimed that a list charting the world’s richest richest people has understated his massive wealth. Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has severed ties with Forbes magazine after its annual list estimated his net worth at $20billion (£13billion). The figure saw the investor ranked at number 26 on the rich list joint with American Carl Icahn and Canadian media mogul David Thomson. But the prince’s office has claimed that his net worth is more like $29.6billion (£19.5billion), a figure that would have put him in Forbes’ top ten just behind L’Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt. He accused the magazine of a ‘flawed’ valuation method that ‘seemed designed to disadvantage Middle Eastern investors and institutions’. Alwaleed is reported to have written to Forbes editor-in-chief Steve Forbes and is said to have instructed his lawyers over the matter. The prince is said to have asked to be removed from the list.
