Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal is another man who probably needs no introduction, but we are going to give him one anyway. Though Prince Alwaleed is a nephew of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, he has stayed out of the realm of politics and has, instead, focused his energies into his business enterprises. He built Kingdom Holdings, which is said to have interests in Apple, Citicorp, Four Seasons hotels, Euro Disney, Fairmont Hotels, Motorola, NewsCorp and AOL. A few years back he was rumored to be buying Everton FC, the English Premier League side. At a net worth of $20.3 billion, he is estimated to be the world’s richest Arab, or, as TIME magazine fondly refers to him, the Arab Warren Buffet.
