Total assets of 100 wealthiest Slovenian increase, Logins firmly on top
Ljubljana, 19 November - The spouses Iza and Samo Login remain the wealthiest Slovenia, topping the list of the Manager magazine for the seventh years running. The total assets of the 100 wealthiest Slovenians amount to an estimated EUR 5.8 billion, EUR 147 million more than last year. The threshold for the list fell by 6% to EUR 20.9 million.
The Logins, the main founders of popular apps company Outfit7 that was sold to China's United Luck Group for US$1 billion in 2017, are estimated to have EUR 689 million worth of assets, the same as in 2019.
Commenting on the Logins, Manager magazine argued that while the time to sell Outfit7 seemed ideal in 2017, "we find that Outfit7 could be worth two or three times as much today".
There has also been no change in second spot, but the gap of Sandi Češko and his partner Livija Dolanc, who sold their 55% stake in omni-channel retailer Studio Moderna in 2019, to the Logins has been reduced by about EUR 50 million, with Češko and Dolanc estimated to be sitting on EUR 345 million, 17% more than last year.
Holding on to third place is Marko Pistotnik, another former owner of Outfit7, whose assets are believed to have remained unchanged at EUR 210 million.
Placing fourth again is the Lah family of financial investors with EUR 164 million, down 3%, followed by Damian Merlak, who sold his cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamp in 2018 and is estimated to be worth EUR 148 million, up 19% on 2019.
The biggest climb has been recorded for Jure Knez, the owner of measuring instruments maker Dewesoft, who doubled his assets to EUR 73.8 million.
There are six new members of the TOP 100, among them NBA veteran Goran Dragić with an estimated EUR 51.4 million and NHL star Anže Kopitar with EUR 31.5 million. Slovenia's new NBA sensation Luka Dončić, still on his first contract, made the list of the wealthiest young millionaires this year. He is estimated to be worth EUR 16.5 million.
