The article offers information on Saudi Arabia Prince Alwaleed bin Talal as well as his wealth. It says that Talal's net worth falls to 13.3 billion dollars following an 8 billion dollars loss on his Kingdom Holding Co. investment in 2008, which comes from losses in sales of stocks and decision to mark down stakes. It adds that the decline on his Citigroup Inc. stock in January 2008 leaves him as a staunch supporter. It also mentions his desire to become the King of Saudi.
