Numavičius' wealth is valued at 1.925 billion euros. He has increased his shareholding in Vilniaus Prekyba from 37 percent to 77 percent over the past decade.

Raila, whose assets are valued at 907 million euros, holds a 90-percent stake in ME Investicija which controls the transport services group Girteka.

The wealth of Darius Mockus, the sole shareholder of the holding group MG Baltic, is estimated to be 400 million euros.

Delfi.lt and the Reitingai magazine compiled the list with the help of financial analysts and auditors.

Gintaras Sarafinas, the magazine's editor-in-chief, notes that Lithuania's rich list differs from similar global lists in that it is mostly topped by people with holdings in trade businesses rather than manufacturing and industry.
