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 French actor-comedian has an estimated net worth of $275 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 Chau Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Ho Chi Minh City Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderchau - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Frédéric) and a fashion line called “Frédéric Chau Seduction”.
