Know How Billionaires Spend Their Wealth
As wisely quoted by Benjamin Franklin, “Wealth is not his that has it, but his that enjoys it.”
Today when we see billionaires in the world, it often crosses our mind as to what do they do with so much wealth. How do they spend their billions? For, Mr Benjamin Franklin himself quoted wisely about money on multiple occasions, and even today, his words stand true.
Well, when Benjamin is your best friend you often don’t know how to make good use of it, learning from the long list of millionaires; most don’t reach the billion marks because of their investments in all the wrong places, which have no return on investment. However, we have few torchbearers here and there in the world, who spend their money wisely and have been growing in billions.
So, here is how the billionaires of our world spend their wealth:
Luxury life of billionaires include splurging on the artefact, both modern and historic. From statues, paintings to artistic jewellery of the historic era, billionaires invest a lot of their wealth investments on purchasing them. The most expensive piece of art sold was the Salvator Mundi by Leonardo Da Vinci. It was sold for $450 million.
Sometimes the general population struggle to get a plane ticket, whereas billionaires own a string of private jets that can take them anywhere in the world at the drop of a hat. The most expensive private aeroplane is the Airbus 380, owned by Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal al-Saud, which is tagged at $500 million.
Yachts are the definition of being wealthy. The extravagance that defines this ‘luxury on water’ is beyond beautiful. Every living person who has an affinity to water secretly wishes to own a yacht, for I know I would love to own one. Currently, the most expensive yacht in the world, named History Supreme was purchased for $4.5 billion! Yes, you read that right. And the second largest is the Eclipse, which is rumoured to be $1.5 billion.
Well, don’t get me wrong, for if you had billions, you too would have shed some greens to get your favourite wheels. Luxury cars give you a sense of owning something special like a kid owns a toy. It is their favourite and close to heart. Cars like Bugatti La Voiture Noire, Bentley Bentayga, Mercedes-Maybach Exelero, Rolls-Royce Sweptail, and many more!
When you have billions to spend, why not invest a portion on your dream motorbike? And that’s how billionaires roll, their collection of motorbikes can be shockingly beautiful and expensive. Just like luxury cars, they love their bikes, whether it’s to ride or as the centrepiece of the ones home. Bikes like Hildebrand & Wolfmuller, BMS Nemesis, Ducati Desmosedici D16RR NCR M16, Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship and others.
Billionaires can purchase what their heart seeks, however, when It comes to being wise, money is spent on real estate. For, it is the best form of investment if put to good use. Billionaires invest a multitude of their wealth on properties if not investing elsewhere, like other sectors of business.
