2. Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Ali Al Amoudi, $14.3 billion
Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Ali Al Amoudi is ranked as the 63rd richest person in the world, and he divides his time between Saudi Arabia and Ethiopia.
He is also the second richest Saudi citizen and the richest black person. His title as Sheikh is strictly due to his wealth and accomplishments, as he is not a member of any royal family (Saudi Arabia does not officially give members of it’s royal family the title of Sheikh).
It is believed he is not only the largest foreign investor in Ethiopia, but Sweden as well. He earned his wealth thanks to his large portfolio of oil, mining and agriculture assets.
