The latest list of New Zealand’s richest people has been unveiled with Graeme Hart remaining at the top of the list.
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.
For the first time the total wealth owned by those on the list exceeds $100 billion.
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.
