Elizabeth Warren, the senator who fights for middle and working class Americans, could now be among the richest.
The Harvard bankruptcy law professor was elected to the Senate in 2012. It has been estimated that she is worth between $3.7 million and $10 million.
According to CNN Money, her net worth, however, does not include the three-story Victorian home in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The publication noted that Warren owned the house with her husband and fellow Harvard law professor, Bruce Mann.
The city property records reported that the house was recently assessed at $1.9 million. She had been ranked as the 76th wealthiest out of 541 senators and representatives, based on her minimum net worth in 2013, according to Roll Call. Thus her average net worth is of $8.75 million, including her home.
When asked about her money, a spokesman said that the senator declined to comment on her wealth.
The good amount of the senator’s wealth had been held in mutual funds and retirement accounts with TIAA-CREF. It is a financial services firm which gave retirement services to universities.
Warren and her husband’s biggest holdings were the ultra-safe TIAA-CREF Traditional fund. In this ultra-safe fund, the couple have at least $1 million.
The senator was born in Oklahoma City in 1949. She turned out to be the first member of her family to graduate from college, ultimately acquiring her law degree from Rutgers University, according to Biography.
Warren is a United States Senator from Massachusetts and a member of the Democratic Party. She was once a Harvard law professor, who specialized in bankruptcy law.
According to Celebrity Net Worths, Warren had written a number of academic and popular works. She had been the subject of media interviews regarding the American economy and personal finance.
The senator came into the limelight recently after she grilled the CEO of Wells Fargo, a gigantic bank that manipulated customer information to create millions of bogus accounts, as reported by NPR.
