Michael Bloomberg Net Worth $34 Billion

With a net worth of $34 billion, he’s the eleventh-richest man in America and the sixteenth-most affluent on the planet. He’s the creator and 88% owner of Bloomberg L.P., the international monetary data and media business noteworthy for its Bloomberg Terminal.

Bloomberg started his career in the securities brokerage Salomon Brothers before forming his business in 1981 and spending another twenty years as its chairman and CEO. A Democrat before seeking elective office, Bloomberg changed his party enrollment in 2001 to run for mayor as a Republican. He conquered opponent Mark Green in a close election held just weeks following the September 11 terrorist attacks. Bloomberg won another term in 2005 and left the Republican Party two years after.

He was often mentioned as a potential nominee for the U.S. presidential elections in 2008 and 2012, and for New York Governor in 2010. He declined to seek either office, instead choosing to continue serving as Mayor of The Big Apple. On January 1, 2014, Bill de Blasio succeeded Bloomberg as mayor of NYC.

On January 31, 2014, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon declared he had made Mr. Bloomberg as his Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change, helping him in consultations with mayors and associated key stakeholders to lift political will and mobilize actions among cities as part of a long term strategy to progress efforts on climate change.
