Jeff Bezos overtakes Elon Musk to become the world’s wealthiest individual

According to Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has regained the title of the world’s richest man, with a net worth of $200 billion. This surpasses Tesla founder Elon Musk, who held the top spot for the past nine months but has now fallen to second place due to a drop in Tesla’s stock price of over 27% this year. On the other hand, Amazon’s stock has risen by more than 16% during the same period.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg follows as the fourth richest person in the world, with a net worth of $179 billion, while Microsoft founder Bill Gates is reportedly worth $150 billion. However, there is one foreign businessman in the top 10 – French luxury goods company LVMH’s Bernard Arnault is ranked third on the list with a net worth of $197 billion.

While there are no women in the top five spots on Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index, Francoise Bettencourt Meyers holds the title of richest woman in the world and ranks at No. 15 overall. She is also related to L’Oréal’s founder Eugène Schueller as his granddaughter. The list highlights how male-dominated it still is despite efforts being made towards gender equality and inclusivity in many sectors.
