Greta Thunberg tops annual list of highest-paid activists

In 2017 it looked like the activist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (October 19) that Thunberg is the highest-paid activist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between September 2018 and September 2019, a nearly $20 million lead over her 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 Swedish activist has an estimated net worth of $145 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Thunberg Burger” chain) in Stockholm, a Football Team (the “Stockholm Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderthunberg - Sweden), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Greta) and a fashion line called “Greta Thunberg Seduction”.

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