What Is The Net Worth Of Sergey Brin?

Sergey Brin is an American computer scientist and internet entrepreneur with a net worth of $52.9 billion. He is the co-founder of Google along with Larry Page. He is also the president of Alphabet, Google's parent company. 

As of June 2019, he is the ninth richest person in the world.  

Net Worth Details: Career and Google's History

Sergey met Larry Page during an orientation for new students at Stanford. They initially disagreed on most subjects but after spending some time together, the two became "intellectual soul-mates and close friends". 

Combining their idea, the two began working on their dormitory as a search engine development center. The two started working on HTML, and due to increase in server requirement, they released the initial version of Google on 1996 in the Stanford website.

Their original name for the engine was "BackRub" but later settled on "Google", a misspelling of "Googol". The domain name for Google was registered on September 15, 1997 and the company was incorporated on September 4, 1998. Jeff Bezos was also one of the early investors in Google.

The company blew up in 1999, and acquired an annual revenue of $50 billion in 2012. He is the employer of Sundar Pichai and is also one of the investor in Elon Musk's Tesla Motors. 

Parent Company Alphabet:

Alphabet Inc. was found on October 2, 2015. It is a multinational conglomerate holding Google and all of it's former subsidiaries. It is the world's 5th largest technological company by revenue and is one of the most valuable companies in the world.

Alphabet's market standing in 2018 was as follows:

Revenue$136.82 billion
Operating Income$26.32 billion
Net Income$30.74 billion
Total Assets$232.8 billion
Total Equity$177.6 billion
No. Of Employees98,771

Sergey has assumed the role of president and Larry, the CEO. According to Larry, Alphabet is,

mostly a collection of companies. The largest of which, of course, is Google. This newer Google is a bit slimmed down, with the companies that are pretty far afield of our main internet products contained in Alphabet instead. Fundamentally, we believe this allows us more management scale, as we can run things independently that aren't very related.

The establishment of Alphabet was prompted by a desire to make the Google experience "cleaner and more accountable" while also allowing greater control and freedom to group companies that operate in sectors other than internet service.

Sergey Brin's Assets: His House and Yacht

Sergey owns a house in west village, Manhattan. The property is a $11.5 million penthouse and has an area of 3,457 square feet and consists of 4 bedrooms, a 23 foot balcony and a limestone bath with heated floors. 

An even more luxurious property sits in the Alpine area of New Jersey. The property spans a massive 30,000 square foot with a large driveway leading up to the $49 million mansion with 12 bedrooms and 19 baths. 

The outside includes a fitness pool, a tennis court and a spa. The mansion also has a 4,000-bottle wine cellar, movie theater, ballroom, formal dining room, dining terrace and three bars.

He owns a massive 600-foot yacht "Dragonfly" that costs $80 million. Along with his co-founder, he has also purchased 3 private jets; a Boeing 767-200 from Qantas for $15 million and $10 million worth of modifications. 

He bought Boeing 757 in 2007 and a Dornier Alpha fighter jet (although unconfirmed) in 2008. 


Sergey Brin's total donations have amounted to $2.2 billion which is 4.6% of his net worth. He has donated to charities that focus on Parkinson's Research. 

He also donated $1 million in 2009 to the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, a Jewish organization that helped Brin's family immigrate to the U.S. almost 40 years back. 

He is also a donor to the democratic party, having donated $5000 for Barack Obama's campaign and $30,800 to the Democratic National Committee. 


Sergey is a smart entrepreneur and pays himself a salary of $1 annually which cuts of his income taxes. Without cash, he earns his income through shareholdings, that is a lot more tax-friendly.
