Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is no longer the richest man in the world – at least so far, foreign media reported.
The net worth of titanium e-commerce fell $ 760 million to $ 115.6 billion as Amazon shares fell 0.7% today. A nine-digit drop might have been a decrease in the Bezos bucket, but it was enough to push it from number one to number two in the Forbes world billionaire list.
The new richest man in the world (again): Bernard Arno, CEO of Behemoth LVMH luxury goods. Arnault gained $ 1.9 billion in net assets on Friday as LVMH shares rose 0.7%. The Frenchman is currently worth $ 117 billion, more than $ 102 billion when he was under Forbes’ protection less than four months ago. “If you compare us with Microsoft, [we are] small,” Arno told Forbes. “This is just the beginning.”
Arno is richer in $ 7 billion than Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who remains the third richest person in the world after Arno and Bezos. Gates would be richer than the two men if he did not give and calculate $ 35.8 billion in his life.
LVMH Arnault was launched in 2020. This week, its beauty incubator Kendo bought another beauty brand Kat Von D and bought LVMH rough diamonds with tennis balls – the second largest in history – from Lucara Diamond Corp. on Wednesday, January 15, 2020
The precious 1758 gem was deactivated in due course, because LVMH made a $ 16.2 billion offer to buy Tiffany & Co.’s iconic jewelry. in November. Tiffany shareholders will vote on the deal on February 4, 2020. Tiffany will join brands such as Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton and Hennessy as part of the growing LVMH portfolio
Arno became the third hundred billionaire in the world last June. He often decapitated Bezos as the richest man in the world, most recently in December. With the assets of both tycoons of less than $ 2 billion, they will likely continue to change locations around the world.
