The Hill's 2011 50 Wealthiest in Congress


Feinstein’s minimum net worth decreased slightly, by more than $600,000, in 2010.

The majority of the senator’s wealth stems from assets held by her husband, Richard Blum. Blum holds a wide range of investments and stocks in companies including CB Richard Ellis Group, Collective Brands, Avid Technology and Career Education Corp. He also has more than $1 million invested with Amyris, Inc., a California-based biofuel company.

In addition, the former San Francisco mayor holds several real estate holdings, including at least $5 million invested in the Carlton Hotel in San Francisco that she jointly holds with her husband.

Feinstein also reported two family trusts of her own, valued at least $1 million each.

The California Democrat’s spouse is listed for more than $2 million in liabilities from a line of credit with First Republic Bank and a term loan from Blum Capital Partners.
