How we felt

Forbes is not the first decade to assess the largest state of the world. For this purpose, the magazine uses a specially developed methodology, the basis of which is as follows.

1. Our assessment of the family's condition is the value of its assets: shares of companies, land plots, real estate objects, as well as personal property, etc.

2. All public companies are valued by market capitalization. Closed companies are valued on the basis of information on sales, profit, equity; A comparison is made with similar companies traded on the stock exchange or in the recent past by a former buyer. We try to be conservative and evaluate the property of entrepreneurs on the principle of "at least not cheaper."

3. The price of the companies and the age of the participants of the list are fixed as of August 1, 2017.

4. The list includes only those families in Russia who have earned the bulk of their capital in private, without being civil servants.

5. The list includes only the 10 richest families in Russia, the bottom of the rating is the state of $ 950 million. If you do not find any of the well-known families on the list, then Forbes estimates its condition in less than $ 950 million.

The information given in the Forbes rating is an expert and journalistic estimate of the total volume of ownership of the said persons.
