Mikhail Prokhorov


The majority of Prokhorov's fortune was built through his close ties to the late Russian President Boris Yeltsin and the privatization of Russia's precious metals industry in the early 1990s. He sold his original metals investment, Norilsk Nickel, to Oleg Deripaska's Rusal in 2007. Now owns stakes in Polyus Gold and basketball's New Jersey Nets.
