Richest king in the world?
It is commonly assumed that King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand is the richest monarch in the world, with a wealth of $30 billion. However, some dispute this, pointing out that the majority of Queen Elizabeth's (and her heir's) holdings, remains a mystery. Her wealth is divided into two. One is a Venetian-style fondo (trust), that is inalienable and must be passed on to her heir, tax-free. The second is her private collection of castles, jewelry, art, stock holdings, bonds and real estate worth about £3 billion. Her fondo trust, managed by a trust and a panel of financial institutions includes over 300 properties, a Royal art collection consisting of over 30,000 items, the Duchy of Cornwall and Lancaster (about 180,000 acres in size), the Crown Jewels, her various landholdings in the United States through proxy companies such as Delta and Pine Land, and much more. The British Parliament is forbidden from revealing the details of the trust' actual wealth, and it is believed to be administered by the Bank of England. Some has estimated the the British monarchy holdings exceeds $100 billion.

1. BNP Paribas BNP Paribas, located in France, is among the world's largest banking groups. After some tough times, BNP modernized and made a move into what they considered the new era of banking 0 and it seemed to work as they turned a profit of over 2.1 billion euros in their last quarter with pro…fits sitting at 8.37%. It was enough to keep their place as the richest bank and corporation in the world based on asset value which came in at a total of 2,952.22 (expressed in billions). 2.Royal Bank of Scotland The Royal Bank of Scotland is a full service financial firm with international ties. Although they have had current problems with their dealings in Ireland, RBS has kept business up with strong lending rates that are the best they have been in 5 years. That was a necessary move however as profits were down by 5.82%. Still their asset value remained and extraordinarily healthy 2,727.94 (expressed in billions). 3.Bytrade(B2B) Bytrade one of the largest international trade marketplace, offer importers and exporters free list. Offer factories and manufacturers from all over the world. (expressed in billions). 4. HSBC Holdings Headquartered in London, England, HSBC Holdings has a strong international presence as a global financial services giant. Profits have remained steady at around 5.83%, and they intend to keep them up by spinning off arms of the business that are proving less profitable or too risky - their current exploration into pulling the plug on their U.S. mortgage unit is an example of that. At last reporting, HSBC had an asset value of 2,355.83(Expressed in billions). 5. Credit Agricole Crdit Agricole of France is the nations largest retail banking group as well as the eighth largest in the world. Profits have been understandably low as France has not been much of a GDP monster for awhile at only 1.61%, but their total asset value is still a surprising 2,227.22 (expressed in billions) despite the nation's high unemployment rate. Credit Agricole has been maintaining strength primarily by lending to other European nations. 6. Bank of America Bank of America is one company listed that will soon be falling down the list due to innumerable issues. Although profits were recently up by 6.28%, they were previously so low the only place to go was up. Since the last set of figures were compiled, BOA has closed more branches and was drawing fire from every angle regarding their business and lending practices. Still, they were maintaining an asset base 2,223.30 (expressed in billions). 7. Barclays Barclays recently posted that profits wereup a whopping 15.17% to raise their asset value to 2,223.04 (expressed in billions). Barclays is primarily engaged in international retail and corporate credit, but they also have an arm that deals in consumer credit cards quite heavily. Barclays is a holding company that is listed on both the NYSE and London stock exchange. 8. Deutsche Bank Headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany, with branches in 72 countries, Deutsche Bank serves businesses and individuals in all sectors of financial need. With profits currently up by 6.93%, Deutsche bank has remained as stable as any bank throughout the economic downturn. Their latest asset valuation came in at 2,150.60 (expressed in billions). 9. JP Morgan Chase With ties to not only the banking sector, but research, finance, and insurance, JP Morgan Chase continues to be one of the top international lenders. Thanks in part to some federal help, profits rose by 11.65%, although in fairness they were in the toilet not long before that resurgence. In any case, they have boosted their total assets 2,031.99 (Expressed in billions). 10. Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Headquartered in Chioda, Tokyo, Japan, they are regarded as the largest bank in Japan and the second largest in the world after UFJ and Mitsubishi merged in 2005. While profits are down by about 2.64%, their net assets are still holding strong at 1,999.58 (expressed in billions). (MORE)
