The 500 richest Dutch people have together become €7bn richer over the past year, according to the latest edition of the Quote 500 rich list.
The monthly business magazine puts their total wealth at €113bn, which is around 25% of the Dutch state debt. Much of the increase is due to the rise in share prices, Quote says.
Bottom of the list is DJ Tiësto with assets of €54m. Top is Heineken heiress Charlene de Carvalho-Heineken whose assets rose 30% to €7.2bn, Quote said. Number two, Randstad founder Frits Goldschmeding, saw his assets grow by 42% to €3bn.
Quote puts construction company boss Dik Wessels in third place, with assets of €2.1bn and television producer John de Mol in fourth place, with assets of €2bn. In fifth place is car importer and investor Wijnand Pon with assets of €2bn.
