What is Becky Quick’s salary and net worth?

Since Quick has been with CNBC for all these years, she must be happy with her salary. While CNBC doesn’t publish journalists’ compensation, Quick takes home an annual salary of $3.0 million, which ranks her among the top female journalists in the U.S.

From her CNBC salary and personal investments, Quick has built a net worth of $15 million. Also, she invests in stocks and bonds. When the COVID-19 pandemic roiled the markets and bond yields largely fizzled out, Quick announced that she had exited bonds. Instead, she said that she was allocating 100 percent of her portfolio to equities because you can’t “make enough money” with bonds. Quick and her husband have a combined net worth of about $20 million.
