100 Biggest Billionaires: Faces and Assets

Bloomberg LP has produced a quick study guide showing (most of) the faces of the 100 richest people in the world, linked to a brief sketch of how they made their billions. Link to Bloomberg's Billionaires here.

No current Philadelphians (unless you count 13x billionaire, Elkins Park-raised conglomarateur Ron Perelman (72); or former Chester County resident and Synthes boss Hansgeorg Wyss (99), who sold his company and went home to be Switzerland's richest citizen a couple years ago, leaving four lieutenants to serve their prison sentences.)

Unlike the annual Forbes attempt to list the 400 richest, Bloomberg's list adjusts daily to account for changes in securities holdings.
