The couple’s combined net worth dropped from $12.6 million in 2021 because of losses in the stock market OpenTheBooks CEO Adam Andrzejewski told Fox News.
“During the pandemic years, the Fauci’s became deca-millionaires with their household net worth exceeding $10 million,” he said. “Last year was a tough year in the markets. However, Fauci’s net worth is still up sharply from $7.6 million in 2019.”
Fauci’s individual net worth is an estimated $9.25 million and his wife’s is around $2.2 million. His assets are spread around various investment vehicles such as trust funds, retirement accounts and college education accounts, according to Fox News.
Fauci is believed to be collecting federal pension of roughly $350,000 annually for his 55 years as a government employee, the largest in federal government history. His annual salary was more than the president’s $400,000 yearly intake and it made Fauci the highest paid official in the federal government.
He stepped down from his role in December 2022 after announcing his resignation in August. A motivational speaker page in February 2023 appeared to show Fauci was charging up to $100,000 for his services. He joined the Georgetown faculty in June as a professor in the university’s medical and public policy schools.
