The New Top 10 Richest People in New Zealand

Graeme Hart

Graeme always wants to keep a low profile and is sometimes referred to as the undercover billionaire. He owns houses in Auckland and Waiheke Island in New Zealand. He has a need to buy out underperforming companies with steady cash flows which can be better managed through better cash management, cost-cutting, and restructuring with other entities. That’s how he has made his wealth and his largest acquisition to date is Alcoa’s Packaging and Consumer group in 2008.

Todd Family

The Todd Corporation is owned by the Todd Family, a large private New Zealand corporation with a value of $4.3 billion. The corporation assemblies a wide range of cars, light and heavyweight commercial vehicles as well. They have interests in extracting and refining petroleum products like kerosene, diesel fuel, and gasoline.
