Court documents unsealed after disgraced former financier Jeffrey Epstein’s Monday bail hearing revealed new insight into his wealth, confirming what Forbes has written since 2011: Epstein is not a billionaire.
A financial disclosure form filed by Epstein’s legal team said he has over $550 million in assets.
In terms of bank accounts, listed are:
Fixed income from bonds ($14,304,679),
Hedge funds/private equity ($194,986,301.)
Properties include: 9 E. 71st St., Manhattan, worth $55,931,000; 49 Zorro Ranch Road, Stanley, NM, $17,246,208; 358 El Brillo Way, Palm Beach, Fla., $12,380,209; 22 Avenue Foch, Paris, France, $8,672,823; Great St. James Island in the Virgin Islands, $22,498,600, and Little St. James Island, also there, $63,874,223.

The single-page document had been kept under seal away from the public until the Manhattan federal judge overseeing Epstein’s sex-trafficking case released it Monday, dismissing it as “cursory.”
The total assets listed are $559,120,954.
The feds are arguing that Epstein — who is accused of sex trafficking — shouldn’t be given bail pending trial because of the uber-connected former moneyman’s potential ability to buy his way to freedom.
A federal judge ordered in July to unseal documents associated with the case, which could implicate other rich and powerful men. The Miami Herald’s “Perversion of Justice” investigative series examined the case which got it rolling again, and which detailed how former secretary of labor Alexander Acosta helped broker—and then shelve—the plea deal. Acosta resigned his Cabinet post last week after coming under fire for his role in the plea deal.
