Meanwhile, she and her husband had publicly and non-publicly traded assets valued at anywhere from $27 million to $116 million, according to the financial disclosure report she filed with the Senate Ethics Committee in December.

The forms require only that Fiorina disclose her investments in ranges. Assets are grouped from $1,001-$15,000 on the low-end to over $50,000 million on the high-end. That means that her investment in Goldman Sachs Bonds, for instance, could be worth anywhere from $5 to $25 million.

Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard chief, recently won the GOP primary and will run against Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer in November.

Among her investments include at least $1 million to $5 million in Hewlett-Packard common stock, $15,000-50,000 in Comcast Common Class A, and various Goldman Sachs funds and bonds.

Other sources of Fiorina's income include a director's fee of some $1.28 million from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, a $57,690 consultant's fee from Fox Broadcasting and nearly $1.5 million in speaking fees from Washington Speakers' Bureau. She listed a total 21 speaking fees from various engagements from Siemens Medical Solutions in Arizona to Tri-Star Events in Abu Dhabi.

Her campaign declined to comment on the Fiorinas personal investment strategy.

The Fiorinas gave $481,384 to charity, including the Charities Aid Foundation America, African Leadership Foundation, Business Executives for National Security, Initiative for Global Development, Smithsonian Institution and Central Catholic High School.
