Amancio Ortega tops annual list of highest-paid business men

In 2019 it looked like the business man’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (October 26) that Ortega is the highest-paid business man in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between September 2020 and September 2021, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The Spanish business man has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Ortega Burger” chain) in Madrid, a Football Team (the “Padrón Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderortega - Spain), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Amancio) and a fashion line called “Amancio Ortega Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Amancio fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
