This Thursday, July 20, 2023, following the reshuffle of the government of Elisabeth Borne, Gabriel Attal was appointed Minister of National Education after having held the position of Minister in charge of Public Accounts. An impressive journey for this early 34-year-old macronist.

Despite his young age, Gabriel Attal has a substantial financial heritage according to his declaration of patrimonial situation of November 2022 filed with the High Authority for the transparency of public life, reports Capital. Son of lawyer and film producer Yves Attal, the new Minister of National Education has a life insurance contract endowed with nearly 1.5 million euros.

Added to this tidy sum, a current account at Société Générale totaling more than 61,000 euros. Finally, the minister also has nearly 70,000 euros placed in a housing savings plan (PEL). In other words, the total amount of financial assets of Gabriel Attal amounts to 1.59 million euros. But, is he the richest government minister?

With his 1.59 million euros, Gabriel Attal is just behind Elisabeth Borne and his 1.67 million euros, according to Le Parisien. The Prime Minister is, in fact, the owner of two apartments, in Paris and in the Hauts-de-Seine, with a total value of 1.3 million. In addition, she has several life insurance policies for a total amount of 250,000 euros.

Although millionaires, Gabriel Attal and Elisabeth Borne are no match for Franck Riester, the minister responsible for relations with parliament. He has assets of 10.6 million euros, including a 55 m2 apartment in Paris, a car garage and several commercial premises. He is the richest minister in the government of Elisabeth Borne.
