The following is a list of the richest and wealthiest Pakistani entrepreneurs sorted by order of their declared or estimated net worth. It is extremely difficult to verify the exact figures of the net worth of some of these individuals because in Pakistan the large business conglomerates are often and typically owned jointly by sons/brothers/close relatives who collectively hold on to the cash and assets, so the financial figures usually cannot be linked to the name of one single individual only.
