Richest people of Ukraine are several ratings compiled and published often by two Ukrainian magazines Focus and Korrespondent. Korrespondent conducts its rating since 2006, while both magazines publish them simultaneously since 2007. Both magazines only include the top performers such as top-50, top-100, top-200 etc.
The Korrespondent criteria for the ratings stay almost unchanged since were initiated in 2006. The only change that took place it was extending of the ratings from top-50 top-100 for 2010. The ratings come out on June 11 every year. The calculations for the magazine are conducted by financial specialists of the investment company Dragon Capital. Those calculations are made by an established system of assets evaluation based on the market capitalization of businesses and the method of comparable evaluation. Korrespondent also contacts every potential candidate to the list (ratings) to confirm the available information.
The Focus criteria change slightly from year to year. See below for more information.
