List of the wealthiest Czechs in our exclusive issue of the E15 Premium Business Elite magazine

The hundred wealthiest Czechs and Slovaks own assets to the value of 1.471 trillion crowns. The list of the hundred wealthiest Czech and Slovak billionaires is published in a special billionaire edition of the E15 Premium magazine, entitles Elita byznysu (Business Elite). It also includes profiles of the wealthiest Czechs and Slovaks, including their life stories, rises and falls and how they came by their wealth.

The ranking was produced following months of analysing economic data, studying hundreds of annual reports, AGM minutes, notarial deeds and articles in print and online media. Opinions on the wealth of billionaires were shared by leading investors, bankers, consultants, the entrepreneurs themselves and other market players, with whom editors met over a number of months. 

“The world of the wealthiest has always attracted public interest, which is why lists of billionaires are produced the world-over. E15 Premium magazine editors endeavoured to bring the most objective analysis of the assets of Czech and Slovak billionaires,” says E15 Editor-in-Chief, Tereza Zavadilová. The methods used to calculate assets are conservative. 

Billionaires are doing well in all sectors, but one business sector stands out from them all. “In the Czech Republic and Slovakia, like elsewhere in the world, companies in the technology sector are doing the best. A clear example is anti-virus company Avast’s successfully joining the London stock exchange,” says list author and leading economic journalist, Vladan Gallistl. As well as Avast founders, he says that other people who invested in technology are doing well. In contrast, business people who relied merely on the redistribution of assets during the wild 1990s are gradually falling down the list. 

This exclusive issue of the E15 Premium magazine also includes a unique double interview with founders of Avast, Pavel Baudiš and Eduard Kučera. The magazine includes many topics, such as which managers are billionaires’ favourites, why the rich like the world of horses, how billionaires’ wives enjoy themselves, and who represents the hopes of Czech business. 

There are clear differences in the wealth of even the richest of us. The clear winner of the ranking is PPF Group majority shareholder Petr Kellner, whose assets come to a sum of 281 billion crowns. Roughly every fifth billion crowns of the top one hundred Czech and Slovak billionaires is owned by Kellner. In second place is Prime Minister Andrej Babiš, who is in charge of the Agrofert conglomerate. The value of his assets is 93 billion crowns. Only people whose assets come to at least 2.9 billion crowns got into this list of top business people. The list of billionaires is also available in the paid zone of the E15Premium.cz website. 

The publication of the magazine will be marked by a social event including a launch, taking place on the occasion of the opening of the show jumping league, Global Champion Playoffs. General Partner to the Billionaires 2018 project is HAVEL & Partners law firm, while Main Partner is Patria Finance

The E15 daily provides its readers with mainly business news in its printed E15 daily, and at the e15.cz website. The E15 Premium brand includes paid content on the website E15Premium.cz, specialist magazines of the same name, events and conferences.
