Forbes Top 10 Billionaires 2013
Forbes’ list of the world’s billionaires is out and the billionaires themselves have scaled new peaks. The Forbes Billionaires list 2013 has 1,426 names to add to it, with net wealth of USD 5.4 trillion, up from USD 4.6 trillion. Adding to the list are 210 new ten-figure fortunes.

US tops the list, again, with 442 billionaires, next up is Asia-Pacific at 386, Europe with 366, the Americas at 129 and Middle East and Africa at 103. This year round there were more gainers than losers, outnumbering the latter by 4-to-1.

Not surprisingly, Carlos Slim retains his spot as the world’s richest person, closely pursued by Bill Gates, Amancio Ortega of Spanish retailer Zara, who is this year’s biggest gainer, adding USD 19.5 billion to his fortune. Warren Buffett is pushed down slightly to No. 4, though he added USD 9.5 billion to his fortune. Interestingly, this is the first year where Buffett has not made it to the top three in the wealthiest list.

Let’s have a look at this year’s 10 richest billionaires!
