They have also have set up "personal revival trusts," which are designed to ensure their present wealth will be waiting for them when they have been resuscitated 100 or 200 years in the future.

David Pizer, 64-years-old, figured that the "roughly $10 million" he left to himself—after all the compound interest has been added in—will make him "the richest man in the world" when he wakes up.
