BRW Rich 200, 2016

The BRW Rich 200, 2016 is the 33rd annual survey of the wealthiest people resident in Australia, published in The Australian Financial Review on 27 May 2016.[1][2] From its establishment in 1984 and up until the publication of the 2016 list, the survey had been published in either hardcopy and/or online format in the BRW, or formerly, the Business Review Weekly. On 4 March 2016, Fairfax Media announced the closure of the BRW website, and redirected the site to a new section of The Australian Financial Review. Rich lists are now published in The Australian Financial Review Magazine and in 2017 were rebranded as the Financial Review Rich List.[3]

In the 2016 list, the net worth of the wealthiest individual, Harry Triguboff AO, was A$10.62 billion. The combined wealth of the 200 individuals was calculated as A$197.3 billion;[2] compared with a combined wealth of A$6.4 billion in 1984 when the BRW Rich 200 commenced.[4]
