The American journalist has an estimated net worth of $ 275 million. He owes his money to some smart stock investments, a significant amount of real estate, and lucrative sponsorship deals with CoverGirl Cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the "Fat Cooper Burger" chain) in Washington, a soccer team (the "New York Angels"), has launched and tried his own brand of vodka (Pure Wondercooper - USA) now to reach a younger target group with its well-selling perfume line ("Von Anderson mit Liebe") and the fashion line "Verführung by Anderson Cooper".
