To reach a total of $191 billion, the Waltons of Walmart increased their fortune by 39 billion.
The Waltons rake up to $70,000 per minute, $4 million per hour and $100 million a day, according to report by Bloomberg.
25 of the richest families in the world collected $1.4 trillion in total wealth, which increased by 24% from 2018.
After the world’s richest family, comes the Mars family with worth $126.5 billion, making it the second richest family in the world.
Research director Rebecca Gooch at Campden Wealth said, “It can be very challenging to preserve wealth over the long-term.”
“Family-owned operating businesses can shift from booming to declining, a family’s investment portfolio might not be well-diversified or there can be issues with generational transitions,” added Gooch.
The richest families in the world have gained a total of $250 billion in wealth since last year.
