5 ) King Mohammed VI of Morocco – $5.7 billion
Mohammed VI ascended to the throne following his father’s death in 1999 and he immediately set about improving upon his appalling human rights record and alleviating poverty. Royal assets include a number of natural resources including the country’s only phosphate mine and a majority stake in the OCP group. The king has also met his own ambitious goal of attracting an annual number of 10 million tourists. The country has also seen a number of Hollywood movies set within the country in recent years including the Sex and the City franchise and Disney’s Prince of Persia.
4) Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan of President of UAE – $15 billion
Al-Nahyan is hereditary ruler of U.A.E. capital Abu Dhabi. He controls 97.8 billion barrels of oil reserve, as well as running the world’s second-largest sovereign wealth fund with assets reported to be $627 billion. His own estimated wealth is a rather modest $15 billion in comparison, although he does spend the majority of his time on his 30-acre Seychelles estate.
