Manuel Valls tops annual list of highest-paid politicians

In 2015 it looked like the politician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (December 10) that Valls is the highest-paid politician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between November 2016 and November 2017, 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 French politician 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 Valls Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Barcelona Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondervalls - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Manuel) and a fashion line called “Manuel Valls Seduction”.

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