Most of Chicago’s billionaires saw an uptick in dollar signs in 2016, which Forbes magazine says was a record year for billionaires.
Fourteen Illinois residents landed spots on the Forbes 400. Ken Griffin was tops statewide and ranked 57th overall with a $7.5 billion net worth.
2015 wasn’t great for Illinois’ wealthiest residents. Of the 17 billionaires who call the Land of Lincoln home, 11 saw their net worth shrink.
