Ivan Glasenberg only became a Swiss citizen in 2011, but he still counts as one of the wealthiest citizens that the country has to offer. Glasenberg was born in South Africa in 1957, and he would eventually graduate from the University of the Witwatersrand with a Bachelor of Commerce and a Bachelor of Accountancy. In 1984, he joined Glencore, a massively influential mining company that was headquartered in Switzerland.


By 2002, he had been named Chief Executive Officer of the company. His net worth has steadily declined over time as the economic climate has changed, but he still has a pretty fat wallet. Currently, Glasenberg’s primary Swiss resident is located in the village of Rüschlikon.
