#10. Ann Walton Kroenke

- Net worth: $7.9 billion (#239 wealthiest person in the world)

- Source of wealth: Walmart

Ann Walton Kroenke, 71, a registered nurse, is not at all involved in the day-to-day running of Walmart, her family’s business. While she inherited billions of dollars of shares upon the death of her father Bud Walton, she and her husband have chosen to use their combined billions to purchase numerous U.S. sports teams like the Los Angeles Rams, Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche, Colorado Rapids, and the Arsenal Football Club in the United Kingdom, instead of vying for positions on the board.
