Ananyevs Lead in Family Wealth Ranking

The Ananyev brothers have moved into first place in the rating by Finans magazine of the wealthiest business families in the country. They took over the lead position from the Gutseriyev family, which was No. 1 last year.

Alexei Ananyev, chairman of the board of Promsvyazbank, and his younger brother Dmitry, chairman of the Federation Council's financial markets committee, have a combined net worth of $6.5 billion, which is a 41 percent increase over last year. The two occupy 43rd and 44th places in the publications overall billionaire rating.

Mikhail Gutseriyev, founder of Russneft, and his relatives have a net worth of $5.8 billion, with 17 percent growth over last year.

Taking up third place is the Rotenberg brothers, whose main assets include Stroigazmontazh, SMP Bank and Mostrest. Their combined net worth is $3.5 billion, which increased over 2010 by 88 percent.

Family wealth grows faster than individual net worth, according to Finans' calculation. The average net worth increase over last year's was 34 percent, but family capital increased on average by 51 percent.
