Baltic news, News from Latvia, BNN.LV, BNN-NEWS.COM, BNN-NEWS.RUAlthough the family’s fortune has dropped to EUR 120 million, Latvia’s wealthiest family remains the Lembergs family – Aivars, Anrijs and Liga, according to information compiled by Lato Lapsa and Kristine Jancevska, Laika stars and Lursoft.

According to what Lapsa told journalists, this year’s list consists of the same families that were featured on it last year. The only difference is that some families have switched places.

Authors of the survey say the real index of financial wealth of Lembergs family is the list of properties arrested by the prosecutor’s office. The general value of those assets continues to decline. Aivars Lembergs’ declaration states personal income of EUR 450,000 and EUR 15 million debts before his children. Anrijs Lembergs’ owned 50% of LSF Holdings brought him 37th place. Ventbunkers, in which Liga Lemberga owns 0.13% of stocks, has brought Liga EUR 17 million in revenue. In addition, Ventbunkers’ subsidiary Latvijas naftas tranzits signed a mega-deal this year, selling stocks of Ventspils Nafta for EUR 79.98 million in 2015.

Latvia’s second wealthiest family is Lipmans family – Kirov and Anna. In total, this family’s wealth has declined EUR 12 million down to EUR 58 million.

Authors of the list say EUR 3.36 million of losses in Grindeks have reduced the worth of this family’s owned assets. The tense situation in Russia and Ukraine and the decline of Russian rouble’s value had significantly impacted Grindeks’ financial situation.

The third wealthiest family in Latvia is the Skele family – Andris, Kristiana Libane-Skele, Madare Skele-Dupate and Anete Skele-Petersone – with a fortune of EUR 55 million. The family’s wealth had decreased by EUR 2 million over the past twelve months. Authors say family members of Andris Skele’s family remain in ownership of stocks in companies like Sabiedrība privātajiem ieguldījumiem, Vaļņu nams 11, Ogres piens, Uzņēmumu vadība un konsultācijas, MS Private, Anna Barons and others.

The fourth wealthiest family in Latvia is that of once the owner of Dobeles dzirnavnieks Vitautas Paskaskas, which owns Agrolats Holding. The family’s total worth in owned assets had declined by EUR 8 million over the course of twelve months – to EUR 52 million.

The family’s owned Agrolats Holding had earned revenue worth only EUR 99,000 last year. Agrofirma Tervete, a company part of the holding, had suffered losses worth EUR 93,000 last year. Nevertheless, Paskausku family is also mentioned as a potential buyer of 53.66% of stocks of Latvijas piens held by Trikāta KS.

The fifth wealthiest family of Latvia is Lusins family – Argods, Baiba and Antra. This family has suffered a 25% growth in property worth, reaching EUR 50 million. All companies owned by this family have worked with profit this year. Kurzemes degviela and associated companies, as well as Argods Lusins’ owned Alco company, remain the most valuable assets of this family.

Peshkov family – Aleksandr, Sergei, Aleksei, Yelizaveta, Lyubov, Natalia and Olga – has entered the list of Latvia’s wealthiest families with a fortune of EUR 48 million.

With EUR 34 million, businessman Julijs Krumins and his daughter Maija Cernavska have also made it to this list. The same applies to Nadezhda and Oleg Cepulski with EUR 24 million. The list concludes with Kargin family – Valery, Rem and Maksim – with EUR 20 million.
