H.I. Rich is the CEO of wealth management company 360 Wealth Management, which he co-founded in 2005.
Rich made his fortune in real estate, including the purchase of the Cleveland Cavaliers arena.
Rich told the Houston Chronicle in February that the goal of his company is to help the wealthy, and that his goal is to become a billionaire.
“If I are lucky enough [to die in] 2018, we will have accomplished that,” Rich said.
“We are not going to get to the top of the food chain or to the world’s wealthiest, but we will achieve it.
It’s a long way to go, but that’s what we’re going for.”
Rich is not the first person to say that if he dies in 2018 he will make the planet “affordable” for everyone.
In 2012, Harvard Business Review reported that Harvard Business School professor Andrew Gelman predicted that Rich would make at least $100 million if he died in 2018.
In a 2010 interview with Business Insider, Rich said that he was planning to take the family’s fortune “to a new level.”
“I would like to invest in things like the Internet and start the Internet at some point,” Rich told Business Insider.
“But I don’t want to invest too much.
I would like something that would be a good investment to help us continue to get more and more wealth.”
Rich was also named by Forbes as one of the world “10 most undervalued billionaires.”
In January, the company announced a $30 million fund aimed at creating more opportunity for the poorest and most marginalized.
In August, the Forbes magazine revealed that Rich and his wife had bought their first house for $1.9 million, a home they bought in 2014.
In March, Forbes named Rich the “most overvalued billionaire” of 2018, placing him in the same category as the likes of Warren Buffett and Carlos Slim Helu.
