3 Bono Net Worth
Net Worth: $600 million
More likely to grab headlines for globe-trotting and meeting with politicians than for his music anymore, the front man for U2 has expanded over the last few years. While their tours have brought in plenty, and the band owns the rights to their own music, Bono has gone beyond all that. He has accumulated a net worth of $600 million through investments via his Elevation Partners private equity firm. These investments range from buying up part of Facebook’s IPO to part or full ownership of a clothing line, hotels, and more.
