20 years ago, a fortune of NIS 250 million (about $71.5 million) was enough to make the list of the 100 richest Israelis; today, the threshold is NIS 800 million (about $228.5 million). The aggregate wealth of Israel’s 100 richest people is NIS 412 billion (about $118 billion), equal to the wealth of 850, 000 (about $242.8 million) ordinary Israelis.

“Israel’s wealthiest people have multiple passports and citizenships, own apartments on Rothschild Boulevard, on the Upper West Side, and in Knightsbridge. They close deals in South America, Europe, or in the East, ” says “Forbes Israel”. “They immigrate to Israel when the Tax Authority offers deals for returning residents, and they emigrate when regulation or social protests breathe down their necks.”

The ten richest Israelis are as follows:
