Nick Clegg tops annual list of highest-paid politicians

In 2018 it looked like the politician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (September 18) that Clegg is the highest-paid politician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between August 2019 and August 2020, 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 British politician 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 Clegg Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Chalfont St Giles Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderclegg - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Nick) and a fashion line called “Nick Clegg Seduction”.

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