Trading One Oneís Panache...Trump Shows Itís The Way To Riches

According to Forbes magazineís annual issue of the 400 richest people in the world, Donald Trumpís largest holdings are in the form of his real estate brand-licensing business.

The mogul essentially works in one of two ways: he either acquires part ownership of real estate by bartering the use of his name on the building, or he will receive a percentage of the condo sales for the use of his name.

(According to Forbes, Trump gets 8% to 15% of other developersí gross condo sales. He normally puts up no money and usually gets upfront payments of several million dollars. At the moment there are three dozen such franchised condo buildings under way. The units will carry a total asking price of $10.7 billion.)
