I’m an assistant managing editor at Forbes, and a big part of my job is figuring out how much the richest people in the world are worth for the annual Forbes Billionaires List. AMA!
I’ve tracked the world’s wealthiest people for Forbes for nearly two decades, first as an enterprising reporter and later as one of two editors who oversees all our global wealth coverage and ultimately signs off on the final ranks of the world’s billionaires for the annual Forbes Billionaires list. Handling highly confidential and sensitive information is a critical part of my job, as is figuring out who to trust. It is never dull and I am always trying to uncover new information and out new billionaires.
