Forbes’ Real-Time Billionaires tracks the daily ups and downs of the world’s richest people, among them the wealthiest Americans in finance and investments. ThinkAdvisor identified the 15 financiers and investors at the top of the pecking order.

Forbes’ wealth-tracking platform provides ongoing updates of the net worth and ranking of each person that researchers confirm is a billionaire. The value of each person’s public holdings is updated every five minutes when stock markets are open.

The net worth of those whose fortunes are significantly tied to private companies are updated once a day. (Our list features information from noon Eastern time on Dec. 16.)

If an individual owns a stake in a private company that accounts for 20% or more of their net worth, the company’s value is adjusted according to an industry- or region-specific market index provided by FactSet Research Systems when available.
