Leading the pack is Steve Cohen, with a staggering net worth of $19.8 billion, placing him at the 97th spot on the global rankings. Cohen, the founder of hedge fund Point72 Asset Management, has witnessed a significant surge in wealth, surpassing last year’s figures by over $2 billion.

Previously associated with SAC Capital, which closed down due to insider trading allegations resulting in a hefty $1.8 billion fine, Cohen made headlines by acquiring the New York Mets in 2020. Notably, he has also contributed $1 billion towards various philanthropic endeavors.

The other billionaire hailing from Connecticut is Ray Dalio, aged 74, known for founding Bridgewater Associates.

Having retired from Bridgewater Associates in 2022, Dalio’s philanthropic efforts have seen him donate $1 billion towards charitable causes.
