Forbes has now published their annual list of the wealthiest fictional characters, and coming in at number 14 is a Wizard of wealth and taste: Lucius Malfoy. In this very funny (and spoiler filled) writeup which you can read below, the dashing Death Eater with a wealth of 1.6 billion, has apparently been wreaking havoc with the Wizard Stock Exchange this year. Shocking, we know. ;)

On a related note, Forbes has also posted the 25 Largest Fictional Companies, with Wizarding Financial Institution Gringotts coming in at number 22. Under the command of CEO Borgnuk and headquarters apparently in London, England, the wizarding bank run by the Goblins did $4.4 billion in business this year. To read both of these articles, please scroll down. Enjoy!

Thanks much Mari!

#14 Malfoy, Lucius
Net Worth: $1.6 billion
Source: Inheritance
Age: 51
Marital Status: Married
Hometown: Wiltshire, England
Education: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Patriarch of ancient wizarding family still standing after defeat of Dark Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Malfoy, himself a convicted criminal and Azkaban prison escapee, miraculously managed to avoid being sent back to jail thanks to well-timed “donations” to charities supported by influential Ministry of Magic employees. Now reunited with family and unfettered by criminal charges, Malfoy is aggressively pursuing new business enterprises. In June, attempted to corner the global cauldron market. In August, sold short more than $1 billion worth of Galleons, forcing Gringotts Bank to devalue and withdraw the currency from the Wizardly Exchange Rate Mechanism. Member since 2005.

#22 Gringotts
Headquarters: London, England

Industry: Financial Services

CEO: Borgnuk

Est. 2007 sales: $4.4 billion

Reputation of Goblin bank left in tatters after successful break-in and burglary from one of its most highly secured vaults. Revelations that the theft was masterminded by Harry Potter (a.k.a. “The Boy Who Lived”) fail to reassure customers concerned that the bank’s much-ballyhooed security was compromised by mere children. Featured in Harry Potter.

LOL the stuff about Gringotts is hilarious! But I didn’t know that stuff about the Malfoy’s lol

Avatar Image says:

is this stuff canon or did they make it up I think they made it up

Avatar Image says:

Lol. That’s funny :)

Avatar Image says:

There’s no way he’s worth that much money. He would have had his assets stripped from him post-war and deservedly so since he’s a war criminal!

@moody! and spencer:

“Is this stuff cannon, or did they make it up?” WHO CARES!” It’s hilarious, and fun! LOL!!!

Avatar Image says:

haha that’s hilarious

Avatar Image says:

i love it!!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

That Gringotts break in (assuming they’re talking about the one in DH26) happened nearly ten years ago (spring of 1998, according to the book). They can’t really believe that the bank would STILL be struggling a decade later, can they?

He is so not 51 to me! Never! Maybe 40, but 51?! XD

Avatar Image says:

Hot and loaded!!

I agree lizetm. Jason Isaacs doesnt look 51 – unless he has been going to the wizard gym alot and is a very well preserved 51.

Avatar Image says:

What about Harry? He got an inheritance from his parents and one from Sirius. His dad and Sirius were both from “old wizarding families” so I wonder how much he’s worth as an adult.

Avatar Image says:

Lucius was born in 1954, so he’ll be 53 now, not 51 (not that wizards age much).

As for Jason Isaacs, born 1963, and therefore exactly the right age for Lucius who was 42 in 1996 (when the raid on the Ministry took place). I like it that Forbes took JKR’s comment that Lucius escaped being sent back to Azkaban after the fall of Voldemort as canon.

That just goes to show money can keep you out of jail.

Avatar Image says:

Ya I certainley agree with u…..

Avatar Image says:

Well, obviously Forbes’s sources are Muggle reporters! They forgot Lucius’s April feat in cornering the markets on holly, cherry and willow wood; unicorn hair and dragon heart strings, thereby getting a strangle hold handle, literally, on wand making everywhere! ;)
