Robert and Carmen Geiss swim in luxury. For years they have been allowing viewers to share their wealth. But how rich is the couple really?
In 2011, Robert and flicker
Carmen Geiss first hit the screens with her reality documentary ‘The Geissens – A Terribly Glamorous Family’. For more than a decade, audiences in the millions have followed the couple as they travel, shop, sip champagne and spend money.
He did not disclose how much money Robert Geiss had in his account. Until now. The 58-year-old has revealed the details of a fortune for the first time. “I have the 100 million euros,” said the entrepreneur in the current episode of the “OMR” podcast. “This is retirement, this is the basis for still being able to live peacefully at 70”.
He made his first million selling the Uncle Sam fashion label. He founded the label together with his brother in the mid 80’s. In 1995 the brand was then sold for 140 million marks. The shares were divided between the two brothers.
Now he also invests in real estate and stocks, among other things. But his investments are not always crowned with success. “Wirecard cost me money, but thank God there were only a few hundred thousand that were gone,” the millionaire said.
But Robert Geiss was not aloof. This is mainly due to where he lives. “Munich has the advantage that we don’t feel really rich. Because people walk around here and your shoes fall off,” explains the 58-year-old. The businessman has lived with his wife on the French Mediterranean coast since the 1990s.
“When you enter the port, there are boats 100 or even 120 meters long. There are models that cost 500 million euros. It means you feel normal over there. And we feel normal too. We are not detached, even when we drive the yacht” Geiss said.
