Ivan Chrenko, who holds a majority share in the HB Reavis developer, is the richest Slovak. His property is estimated to be worth €1.39 billion, the Forbes magazine reported.
He came first after Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš, who comes from Bratislava, was not listed. His property is estimated to about €2.7 billion.
“Since Forbes’ global ranking of billionaires lists the Czech Prime Minister under the Czech flag, we decided to include him only in the Czech list,” Forbes Slovakia’s editor-in-chief Juraj Porubský said, as quoted by the SITA newswire.
Who is among top 3?
Jaroslav Haščák, a partner of the Penta financial group, came second in the ranking. Forbes estimates his property is worth €960 million.
Haščák and Chrenko are the only Slovak billionaires listed on Forbes’ global ranking of billionaires.
Haščák is followed by Tomáš Chrenek, whose assets are estimated to be worth €680 million. Chrenek owns the Moravia Steel firm and the Agel medical group.Related articleRead more
