By the time the clock rings in the new year, we will have lived through 365 days of 2015. And in that time, Taylor Swift will have pulled down roughly $365 million. If my math is correct, that would mean she took home a million bucks a day.
So she’s got that going for her, which is nice.
U.S. financial experts recently took a look at the Swift’s portfolio, prompting them to make that estimate. Swift is an unstoppable force, according to LA-based media analyst Mike Raia.
“She is so far ahead of everyone else in the industry,” Raia says, “that she has become not only a powerhouse entertainer, but also an important mover and shaker on the commercial side of the music business.”
Thanks to her album sales, income generated from her 1989 tour and her endorsements of Diet Coke, Elizabeth Arden and more, Swift has made $317.8 million since January. Swift has also invested in a handful of music management and touring companies that are making moves and, in turn, making her money. And as if she already didn’t have one or two things going her way, she comes from good stock. Her father is a wealth management adviser and her mother is a former mutual fund executive, which means her dad is probably spending time overseeing her portfolio, as opposed to sending out cringe-worthy tweets. Advantage: Swift.
These same experts believe Swift will hit billionaire status by age 30, and is on her way to becoming one of the world’s wealthiest women. You know what that means?
Watch your back, Oprah.
