Days after losing the title of the richest person on earth to Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, LVMH chief Bernard Arnault reclaimed the No. 1 spot. With a shocking net worth of $194.8 billion, Arnault has moved ahead of Bezos. Bezos is now listed at $193.4 billion, as of June 12, 2021.
Imagine if you’d noticed.
A vast majority of Jeff Bezos’ wealth is tied up in his Amazon shares — Bezos owns about 10 percent of the e-commerce giant — in addition to an estimated $19 billion worth of cash and investments, $500 million in real estate, plus aerospace company Blue Origin and the Washington Post.
Right now, it’s mainly a battle between Bernard Arnault, the CEO and Chairman of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA (OTCPK:LVMHF) (OTCPK:LVMUY) and Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN) founder Jeff Bezos that has seen the two bounce back and forth several times between first and second places, which will probably continue to happen. Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk ranks third on the list, followed by Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Warren Buffett.
