For the fifth time in a row, the richest Indonesians per November 2013 are the brothers Robert Budi Hartono and Michael Hartono. Together, they are worth USD $15 billion, primarily acquired through their activities in the banking and tobacco industries. The brothers own large stakes in Bank Central Asia and Djarum (a cigarette manufacturer). Their wealth is slightly down from the Forbes March 2013 edition, in which the brothers were valued at USD $16.7 billion as they felt the impact of Indonesia's slowing economy. The country's GDP growth slowed in the second and third quarters of 2013 to 5.83 percent and 5.62 percent respectively.
