Bay Area Billionaires, 2018

How many billionaires are there in the Bay Area? Who’s the richest person in San Francisco? Today we present you with our annual “Bay Area Billionaires” list for 2018, to answer those and other questions about the region’s wealthiest.

Not surprisingly, there are more billionaires here than ever — with new additions to the list thanks to some recent IPOs and the explosion of the cryptocurrency market.

Other additions include the world’s youngest self-made billionaire (John Collison, the 27 year old co-founder of Stripe), a female self-made billionaire (Arista Networks CEO Jayshree Ullal), and the world’s richest cryptocurrency billionaire Chris Larsen, who at one point on January 4th of this year was worth $59 billion thanks to his holdings in Ripple, making him momentarily the 9th richest person on the planet (the value has since dropped, putting him at a meager $4.7 billion as of this writing.)

The following estimates are compiled from information provided by Forbes (April 2018 numbers), Bloomberg.com, the Hurun Global Rich List, stock quotes as of April 2018, and other publicly available sources.

As high net worth individuals typically have multiple homes around the world, we include them on this list if they have a home or business here, or spend most of their time here (it’s a subjective call — for instance, we don’t include Elon Musk because he’s based mostly in LA and doesn’t appear to own a home here, though some of his companies are headquartered in the Bay Area.)

Our list stops at number 105. There are several more, especially in the venture capital sector, but their numbers aren’t public and they haven’t been added to Forbes or Bloomberg lists, so we didn’t feel comfortable adding them. Let’s just say, if we added names of people in the $500 Million to $1 Billion range, there could easily be 150 more entries.

Over 10 percent of the richest Americans live here, and this is who they are..
