Forbes ranking of the wealthiest Slovaks did not change much compared to the previous year.
The ranking of the wealthiest Slovaks did not change much compared to the previous year, at least when it comes to the five leading positions.
Similarly to the previous edition, developer and owner of the HB Reavis group Ivan Chrenko tops the ranking of the 32 richest Slovaks, published by the Slovak edition of Forbes magazine. However, his property worth shrank a bit, falling from €1.65 billion to €1.5 billion.
Chrenko is followed by Jaroslav Haščák, co-founder of the Penta financial group, who maintained his position from last year as well. His property is worth €1 billion in the 2021 edition, down from €1.07 billion last year.
The third richest Slovak is Miroslav Trnka, co-owner of the Eset antivirus software company, with €730 million in property worth, up from last year’s €700. He is followed Peter Paško and Rudolf Hrubý, both from Eset, with total property worth of €710 million and €700 million, respectively. Both have seen an increase in their property compared with the previous year.
While economic performance dropped last year, the cumulative wealth of the richest Slovaks increased, despite the pandemic. It exceeded €12 billion, for the first time since Forbes started publishing its ranking for Slovakia nine years ago. This figure represents 13 percent of Slovakia’s GDP last year.
