WASHINGTON -- Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee held assets in 2013 worth between $19.02 million and $89.7 million, based on a Senate financial disclosure form filed this month.

That compares with the $18.67 million to $91.55 million disclosed on his 2012 form.

Corker's 2013 wealth was spread over 38 different assets, including ones held by his wife Elizabeth.

Like Rep. Diane Black, R-Gallatin, the senator is annually listed as one of the wealthiest members of Congress.

Based on his 2012 form, Congressional Quarterly listed Corker as the 22nd wealthiest out of the 535 lawmakers in the Senate and House.

The Center for Responsive Politics estimated his net worth at $49.11 million based on his 2012 form.

Similar rankings based on 2013 holdings have not been released yet.

Congressional rules allow lawmakers to list the value of their assets in broad dollar ranges only. They do not have to list the value of their primary residence or their personal vehicles.

One the two biggest assets on Corker's 2013 form is his stake in the Volunteer Building, commercial property at 832 Georgia Ave. in Chattanooga, valued at $5 million to $25 million. He also had an interest in a Pointer "hedge fund of funds" in Chattanooga, valued at $5 million to $25 million. A hedge fund of funds is an investment portfolio that holds shares from a number of different hedge funds.

Corker is a former mayor of Chattanooga.

Corker also listed six other investment funds and bank accounts valued at between $1 million and $5 million apiece.

Corker listed no liabilities. Senators are only required to list debts if they are more than $10,000. On his 2012 form, Corker had $2 million to $10 million in liabilities.

As for outside positions, the two-term senator listed himself as:

-- Officer of Corker Development Corp. in Chattanooga.

-- Director of Corker Properties in Chattanooga.

-- Trustee of a trust for his daughter Emily.

-- Trustee of a trust for his daughter Julia.
