It’s been a decade of booms and busts — and while it’s ending on a bust for many, a few are sitting as pretty as can be in multi-billionaire status. In reflecting on the fortunes of the past 10 years, The Post took a look at who Wall Street’s biggest winners were. To compile our list, we used publicly available information and intelligence from industry players to estimate what people earned from 2000 through 2009. The list measures both gradual increases in net worth and one-off trades that paid off big, but doesn’t include inheritances or mainly passive income.
Many worthy names have been omitted, but as The Post sees it, these are the most significant earners of the ’00s.
