About Us

The idea for whatisnetworths.com was born in early 2006, after a Google search for ‘Tom Cruise’s wealth’ yielded no useful results. After conducting dozens of similar searches, we had yet to find a quality website that covered the wealth and day-to-day finances of celebrities.

A small team of curious people got together to launch WIN in October 2006. We actually launched our original domain name ‘cwhatisnetworths.com’. The full domain ‘whatisnetworths.com’ was purchased a year later through an auction for $2,000.

Our data is based on financial analyses, market research and internal sources that we have carefully developed over the past decade to maintain accuracy and breadth of knowledge. At a minimum, every net worth estimate on CNW takes into account salary, real estate, divorce, royalties, lawsuits, and known sponsors. Our estimates use a proprietary formula that eliminates estimated taxes, manager fees, agent fees, and lifestyle expenses.

The results are verified and confirmed by a team of editors and insiders. We work diligently to ensure that our numbers are the most accurate and up-to-date celebrity financial information that can be found anywhere.
