The new leader of the Forbes list of the richest Russians continued to build up his fortune. Severstal co-owner Alexei Mordashov, who recently ousted Vladimir Potanin from the first line of the rating, has broken his own record.
The fortune of the entrepreneur’s family against the background of the rise in the price of the company’s shares reached $ 30 billion for the first time, according to Forbes Real-Time. Severstal’s securities peaked at RUB 1,414.4 per share at the Moscow Exchange on Friday. In addition, the company said it expected domestic demand for steel to rise to 3.1% this year.
Previously, only the former leader of the rating, Potanin, managed to reach the 30 billion mark in assessing his condition in dollar terms. Recently, its financial position has fallen due to the fall in the value of Norilsk Nickel shares.
