Talking cat Slovenia's main millionaire maker


Six shareholders have made it among the 150 wealthiest Slovenians, including founders Iza and Samo Login, who have retained the top spot with a family wealth of EUR 855m, according to the latest Manager magazine.

Sandi Češko, once the richest Slovenian, is in second place with EUR 271m, down 31% over last year, with Outfit7 shareholder Marko Pistotnik in third, his wealth having increased by more than a third to EUR 260m, Manager said in advance of Wednesday's release of the print edition.

These are followed by Interblock owner Joc Pečečnik (EUR 240m), Tatjana and Albin Doberšek of Engineering Doberšek (EUR 214m), and the family of privatisation mogul Igor Lah (EUR 111m), the last one to boast wealth of over EUR 100m.

The threshold for the top 100 was EUR 15.1m, almost two million euros higher than last year, while the cut-off point for the top 150 was at EUR 11.4m.

The top 100 have a combined wealth of EUR 4.6bn, up 3.3% over last year and a new record.

This year the magazine decided to exclude those who had sold their assets over three years ago and placed it into investments that are difficult to trace.

Consequently, controversial privatisation tycoon Darko Horvat, who placed seventh last year with EUR 80m, is not on this year's list.

Interestingly, the top 100 is rounded off by managers of LTH Castings, a Škofja Loka castings specialist, each with an estimated wealth of EUR 15.1m.

These managers bought in 2009 an overindebted company for just EUR 300,000 and turned it around. Today the company is worth EUR 180m, Manager estimates.
