Andrei Jikh is a personal finance YouTuber with a net worth of $5 million. The son of Russian circus performers, Andrei entertains his 2.3 million subscribers audience through sleight of hand magic and breaking down complex financial topics. It started off as a generic investing channel then turned to crypto. Now, the channel has gone full circle and is back covering personal finance. Below we break down his wealth by asset class.
Jikh mainly uses Robinhood and WeBull to trade stocks. On Robinhood he owns $800,000 in shares and in March 2021 broke a personal passive income record of 4 figures – earning $1,000 in dividend payments alone. Dividends are powerful! When stocks dip, Jikh likes to buy shares at a discount as a long term investment. In a YouTube video in October 2023, he revealed that he makes around $20,000 per year in dividend income.
Andrei has become a crypto fanatic and made huge money during the bull market. He owns 8.7 Bitcoin, 90 Ether and 2592 Cardano in his Binance account. He also has an account with Coinbase Pro, where he keeps $50,000 in cash to dollar cost average $1,000 into Bitcoin every day.
Jikh publicly revealed a purchase of 16 million OMI tokens which is worth around $10,000. Jikh’s investment in OMI has been a disaster but at least he’s not struggling to pay the bills. Andrei’s crypto portfolio is now worth an estimated $500,000.
In a surprising move, he finally bought a house – paying $735,000 in cash. Unlike his friends, Meet Kevin and Graham Stephan, Andrei isn’t a keen real estate investor. Cash tends to lose value over time and converting it into something that will hold its value is a clever move. He also has roughly $28,000 in the Fundrise app which is described as “digital real estate” investing. The verdict is still out on whether Fundrise is a worthwhile investment, so far results have been disappointing on auto mode.
Normally he invests 95% of his money but because of taxes and potential investment opportunities, he keeps a lot more than before starting YouTube. Andrei has $1,443,000 sitting in cash. Through a combination of stocks, crypto, real estate and cash – Andrei Jikh’s net worth is $5 million.
Additional Income Streams
Not surprisingly, YouTube is Jikh’s primary income source but he’s also making a fortune with affiliate marketing. Currently, he’s an affiliate for Robinhood, M1 Finance, Ledger and Moomoo. According to BusinessInsider.com, the former magician makes $50,000 to $125,000 per month from YouTube ad revenue.
In more recent times, Andrei started a new online business called zerotoamillion.com, where he teaches people how to build a profitable brand online. His beginner course retails for $495 but if you want to be mentored by him in person, you’ll need to spend $2,495.
