The following list of billionaires is compiled annually by Forbes magazine.[1] and Sunday Times Rich List.[2] Forbes excludes heads of state and government, as their wealth is usually tied to their positions. There isn't a unique list of countries by billionaires, for instance the Forbes list does not match the Hurun Report (list).
