Dalio, founder of Bridgewater Associates in Westport, once again was the top Connecticut-based earner on the list. A Greenwich resident, Dalio was ranked 26th on the list, with a personal worth of $17 billion.

Five other Fairfield County residents made the list: Steve Cohen of SAC Capital (Greenwich) was 34th with $13 billion, followed by Paul Tudor Jones II of Tudor Investment Corp. (Greenwich, $4.6 billion) at 144th; Clifford Asness of AQR Capital Management (Greenwich, $3 billion) at 264th; Stephen Mandel Jr. of Lone Pine Capital (Greenwich, $2.5 billion) at 324th; and Peter Buck of Subway sandwich shops (Danbury, $2.3 billion) at 350th.

Topping the list was Microsoft Founder Bill Gates at $89 billion, followed by Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos at $81.5 billion and Warren Buffett at $78 billion.

“The most notable loser was President Donald Trump, whose fortune fell $600 million to $3.1 billion,” the magazine noted. “A tough New York real estate market, particularly for retail locations; a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign all contributed to the declining fortune of the 45th president,” who finished at 248th.
