Mahmoud Ahmadinejad tops annual list of highest-paid political figures
In 2016 it looked like the political figure’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (April 25) that Ahmadinejad is the highest-paid political figure in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between March 2018 and March 2019, a nearly $60 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 Iranian political figure 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 Ahmadinejad Burger” chain) in Tehran, a Football Team (the “Aradan Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderahmadinejad - Iran), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Mahmoud) and a fashion line called “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Mahmoud fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
