$1.4 trillionWhile it’s difficult to separate the families assets from the countries, the House of Saud is estimated to be worth approximately $1.4 Trillion. It’s hard to put this in perspective but I will try.
- First lets get rid of the shorthand, $1.4 trillion is 1,400,000,000,000 dollars. $1.4 trillion is to $1 billion as a day is to one single minute, something you barely even notice. Can you imagine that?
- If you assume a 7% return, the House of Saud can spend $270 million per day without ever dipping into principle. That’s enough to buy a brand new Boeing 777-200ER jumbo jet every day for the rest of your life.
