Thaksin Shinawatra net worth: Thaksin Shinawatra is a Thai business tycoon turned politician who has a net worth of $1.7 billion. Thaksin Shinawatra first started making his fortune after founding Advanced Info Service, Thailand's most successful mobile phone operator in 1986. However, he devoted himself to politics as he founded the populist Thai Rak Thai (TRT) in 1998, and three years later became Prime Minister of Thailand. In 2006 he was overthrown in a military coup and ever since has found life difficult living in self-imposed exile in Dubai.
