Global technology investor Peter Thiel is a new entry on the NBR Rich list after becoming a New Zealand citizen.

Graeme Hart remains at the top and Mr Thiel is at number two.

Brendan Lindsay and Wendell Phillips also make the list after selling plastics-maker Sistema.

NBR editor Duncan Bridgeman told Rachel Smalley they are seeing more newcomers from different fields.

"When you look through the list of newcomers, we've had a wide range from different sectors including ones that we had thought were struggling, such as manufacturing for example."
