Richard Branson Net Worth

Richard Branson Net Worth $4.6 Billion

As a youth, Richard Branson began to sell records and search out new sounds. In the 1970s, he started a shop on Oxford Street. Known as Virgin Records, the record company quickly began to gain a following. Before long, he had rented a space and built a studio for recording musicians. From the Sex Pistols to the Culture Club, many of the top bands of the 1970s were a part of the Virgin Records label.

As the Virgin brand expanded, Richard Branson eventually earned a net worth of $4.6 Billion. After his record label took off, Branson began to expand into other fields. He launched several airlines such as Virgin America and Virgin Atlantic. Other ventures include Virgin Galactic, Virgin Mobile and Virgin Megastores. His Virgin Galactic brand is a space exploration company that plans on selling tickets into outer space. Branson also began Virgin Fuels to search for alternative fuel sources. In addition to his business ventures, Branson is known for his daredevil activities such as attempting to fly a hot air balloon across the Atlantic Ocean. His impressive business abilities led to knighthood and Richard Branson is formally known as Sir Richard Branson. Outside of business, he has developed a reputation for his philanthropic efforts and his appearances in television shows and movies.
