The Dutch footballer has an estimated net worth of $215 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 van Persie Burger” chain) in Amsterdam, a Football Team (the “Rotterdam Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondervan Persie - Netherlands), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Robin) and a fashion line called “Robin van Persie Seduction”.
