Confidence rating:

The majority of Lauder's fortune is derived from her stake in Estee Lauder. She owns about 9% of the stock, according to the company's 2022 proxy statement. Estee Lauder is the world's third-largest maker of cosmetics and fragrances, according to Beauty Packaging magazine's 2021 list of the largest beauty products companies.

She owns shares directly and through two trusts: the 2008 Descendants Trust and the Jane A. Lauder 2003 Revocable Trust, according to the proxy statement. She's credited with half of the 4.9 million shares held by the 2008 Descendants Trust in this analysis because she shares voting and investment power with her sister Aerin, according to the proxy.

The value of her cash investments is based on an analysis of dividend income, insider transactions, taxes and market performance.

Jill Marvin, an Estee Lauder spokeswoman, didn't respond to a request for comment on the net worth calculation.
