The richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, now has a net worth of $ 211 billion as Amazon shares surged 4.7% after the Pentagon announced the cancellation of a cloud computing contract with Microsoft.
This is an absolute record in the ranking of billionaires, which is maintained by Bloomberg. Prior to that, Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk briefly had a fortune of $ 210 billion. Now he has a total of $ 181 billion in his accounts, and he ranks second. The third place is held by the French tycoon and head of the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy group of companies, Bernard Arnault, whose fortune is estimated at $ 169 billion.
Bezos has consolidated his position in # 1 since mid-March, as Amazon shares are up nearly 20% during that time. Since the beginning of the year, Bezos has grown by $ 20 billion.
Bezos’ ex-wife, Mackenzie Scott, is ranked 15th on the list of the richest people in the world. Due to the rise in Amazon stock, her fortune rose by $ 2.9 billion on Tuesday, while she has already donated $ 2.7 billion to charity this year.
Bezos, 57, officially stepped down as Amazon CEO earlier this week for 27 years. However, he owns 11% of the company’s shares and is its executive chairman.
