  • Kipp may not be on Forbes’s list of billionaires, but there are more than 20 Arabs on the list, including four Emiratis. Unfortunately, those who did top the list and dominate the top five were from very distant shores: Mexican Carlos Slim Helu conquered the list with a net worth of  $74 billion, followed by Bill Gates ($56bn), Warren Buffett ($50bn), Bernard Arnault ($41bn) and Larry Ellison ($39.5bn). But who were the richest Arabs? And who were the UAE representatives? Check out our slideshow to find out.
