Richard Spencer tops annual list of highest-paid activists

In 2016 it looked like the activist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (December 16) that Spencer is the highest-paid activist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between November 2017 and November 2018, 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 American activist 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 Spencer Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Boston Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderspencer - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Richard) and a fashion line called “Richard Spencer Seduction”.

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