Hart, worth $9 billion according to the National Business Review, owns a packaging empire and a private equity company.
The 2018 list includes the likes of basketball star Steven Adams, former Prime Minister Sir John Key, US-based tech billionaire and New Zealand citizen Peter Thiel, and movie mogul Sir Peter Jackson.

Adams is included for the first time, coming in at the bottom of the list with a net worth of $50 million. He’s halfway through a four-year $145 million dollar deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder in what is the largest contract ever signed by a New Zealand athlete.
