Which Borne government minister has the biggest wealth?

The minister responsible for parliamentary relations is Frank Riester, who owns the largest public assets with a fortune of more than 10 million euros.

What do the ministers of Elisabeth Borne’s government have? This Thursday, December 1, the Supreme Authority for the Transparency of Public Life (HATVP) made public the declarations of assets and interests of ministers required by law since the 2013 Cahuzac case.

While the legacy of former minister Caroline Cayeux, whose values ​​are disputed by HATVP, is not published on the site, the legacy of 27 members of the Bornean government shows significant differences in situations.

So it is not Bruno Le Maire who has the most important legacy on Bercy’s side. In the protocol order of the government, the total assets and investments of the Minister of Economy No. 2, according to our calculations, are 294,994 euros. This heritage consists of a 310 m² house in the Basque Country of which only 16% is SCI (declared market value €150,000), various accounts and financial investments totaling €119,994 and paintings and furniture. total amount of 25,000 euros.

Budget Minister Gabriel Attal has a greater legacy. In April 2016, the son of lawyer and film producer Yv Attal, who died in 2015, took out life insurance for a total of 1.46 million euros. He has more than 61,000 euros in his current account, and about 70,000 euros in PEL. Thus, the total amount of Gabriel Attal’s financial assets is 1.59 million euros, which makes the 33-year-old minister one of the richest in the government. On the other hand, he has no real estate, and in 2017 he took out a loan with a penalty of 670 thousand euros, and he still had to return the capital according to his declaration.

Low liquidity for Olivier Veran

If Gabriel Attal has only financial assets, government spokesman Olivier Veran’s is the complete opposite. If the total property of the former minister of health is 979,702 euros, it is actually real estate: the bare ownership of the house in Var (105,000 euros), 36% of the SCI (230,000 euros), 150 m². A house in Isere (€640,000) and two cars (Renault and Citroën) with a total value of €27,000. On the other hand, the former neurologist has self-declared “total” financial assets of €4,702, including €4,600 in current accounts and €102 in LDD and passbook.

According to the anecdote, some ministers declared current accounts in debit. So Marlène Schiappa is in the red for €52 on one of her current accounts, Gerald Darmani owes €691 and Armed Forces Minister Sébastien Lecornu has revealed that he has a current account of up to €2,370.

Government millionaires

Several ministers in the government are also millionaires. Apart from Gabriel Attal, it is the case of Elisabeth Borne (€1.67 million). The former president of RATP owns two apartments in Paris and Hauts-de-Seine with a total value of 1.29 million euros and various financial investments.

Agnès Pannier-Runacher’s legacy is even greater. With a total of 2.68 million euros, it consists of two Paris apartments, life insurance and various financial investments. But keep in mind that the energy minister is putting a lot of money in his current account. He holds one with lender Société Générale for €516,000 and another with Axa Banque, which he owns for €87,450.

However, Agnès Pannier-Runacher is not the minister with the most important legacy. Justice Minister Eric Dupond-Moretti announces a total inheritance of more than 4.5 million euros (3.41 million including debt, including 9,333 euros of consumer loans). For the former lawyer, mainly real estate inheritance (2.5 million euros), as well as many different movable assets such as a Rolex Daytona watch (13,000 euros), Journe (25,000 euros) and many vehicles, such as two Harley Davidson motorcycles. (total €41,815) or 2007 Bentley (€55,000).

More than 10 million euros for Frank Riester

If the total inheritance of the Minister of Justice is the highest, the most important in net terms are Sylvie Retalleau (€3.66 million) and Laurence Bun. The latter, the secretary of state for Europe, owns, among other things, apartments in Paris, life insurance, Axa stock options totaling €3.71 million. Bank of America’s former chief European economist Merrill Lynch he does not owe this inheritance.

Sports Minister Amélie Oudéa-Castera is at the helm of one of the most important legacies of the Bornean government. The wife of Frédéric Udean, former CEO of the French Tennis Federation, CEO of Société Générale until May 2023, has net assets of €6.48 million, including €960,000 in real estate (10% of a 46 m² house in Paris ) including significant financial investments including 2.8 million securities accounts and 2.35 million life insurance policies.

But it is Frank Riester who has the most important legacy of government. The minister responsible for relations with the parliament headed the Riester group, which was founded by his grandfather, who owned numerous car dealerships. At the head of this holding, which achieved a turnover of close to 75 million euros in 2020, he amassed a total inheritance worth 10.24 million euros, consisting of 3.85 million real estate assets and, above all, more than 6 million euros of shares in Riester SAS. .
