Larry Ellison net worth is estimated at $54 billion according to Forbes as of 2015. Founder and CEO of the world’s largest business software company Mr. Larry Ellison is not only one of the world’s richest persons alive but is also one of the most flamboyant and outspoken of the lot. A cavalier business personality, he knows how to dress for occasions with his tailor made Italian suits and shirts making him look as if he was born to be a billionaire. Ellison was born to an unwed 19 year old mother. When he was just nine months, her mother gave his child to be adopted by her aunt and uncle in Chicago. It was 48 long years, before Ellison met his biological mother. In 1977, Ellison and his two colleagues Robert Miner and Ed Oates found a company called Software Development Labs, where they came across a paper called “A Relational Model of Data for large Shared Data Banks, which became the basis of their soon-to-be-found fortune. His prime came in 2000, when for a brief period of time he left behind Bill Gates to become the richest person in the world. Other than the humongous Larry Ellison net worth that he has, Ellison is known as a quite multi faceted character: a brusque businessman, marketing genius and a playboy. Owing to his voracious appetite for new estates, he has been tagged as the newest trophy buyer in the country. He follows a simple approach, “Buy the best, without compromise”. The scores of properties he has includes two holdings in Woodside, California, a hotel and two restaurants in Malibu along with two other homes, a 249-acre state in Palm Springs, which he got for $49 million and a garden property in Kyoto Japan worth at least $86 million – all these materialize because of the huge Larry Ellison net worth. Ellison has a penchant for adventures, sailing and outdoor sports that has cost him more than a few million dollars and made him rivals with a few fellow billionaires (read Paul Allen). Larry Ellison net worth has two heirs, Megan and David, both dabbling in the movie business, and is recently divorced from his most recent wife, romance novelist Melanie Craft.
