Warner recorded substantial gains in 2011, with his wealth rising more than $9 million.

The former Virginia governor saw many of his assets rise in value last year. For example, an investment fund with Hound Partners, based in New York City, went from at least $1 million in value in 2010 to $5 million last year.

Other assets held by Warner worth at least $5 million include bonds and other investment funds. He also has a Minnesota Mutual life insurance policy worth at least $1 million.
