The Sunday Times built the indices according to a net value calculation based on capital, including land, property, other assets such as art and racing horses, and shares in public companies. The calculations did not include bank accounts to which the newspaper had no access. The list also includes spouses who actively participate in family businesses or who share their assets, as well as family members who share business interests.

Arkansas-based Walmart is the world’s largest business in terms of income, with revenue of more than $485 billion in 2017. It was founded by Sam Walton, who died in 1992 at the age of 74. His daughter Ellis Walton, one of his seven successors, helped to raise the family fortune with her $500 million art collection and contribution of $225 million worth of shares to the family’s charity organization three years ago.
The wealth of the family is greater than that of David and Charles Koch, which together are worth $121 billion and owned by the Koch Industries, the world’s second-largest private company. Followed by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, and legendary investor Warren Buffett, in that order.
