You might have imagined Hollywood celebrities or new millionaires, but that’s not the case. They just have a few million dollars, or in Kim’s case, one billion dollars.
But we have much more to say about them as the world’s wealthy.
Let us now look at the top ten richest persons in the world.
Jeff Bezos – $176 billion
Jeff Bezos has been holding the title of the world’s richest man for a while. He is the founder and owner of Amazon, and despite the heavy criticism he gets for his poor treatment of employees, poor working conditions and unfair salaries, the world still buys from and from Amazon, making Jeff the richest every year.
Bernard Arnault – $113.2 billion
CEO of the world’s largest luxury goods company. LVMH, full name is Moët Hennessy – Louis Vuitton SE, which made him the second richest man in the world and the richest in fashion. It is clear that being primarily responsible for luxury goods is special.
Bill Gates – $112.8 billion
Bill Gates needs no introduction, but if you live in ignorance, he is the founder of Microsoft. He is one of the world’s billionaires who have a lot of money and know what to do with it, and he gives way to fund many charitable projects and support medical research.
Warren Buffett – $72.2 billion
Warren Buffett is known as the king of money and the best investor. He knows very well how to invest, so he is the fourth richest man in the world. He is also the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, a multinational holding company located in the United States.
Mukesh Ambani – $71.2 billion
Mukesh is the richest man in Asia and the fifth richest man in the world. He is the CEO and majority shareholder of Reliance Industries Ltd, a Fortune Global 500 company in India. It is a multinational holding company engaged in energy, petrochemicals, textiles, natural resources, retail, and telecommunications.
Mark Zuckerberg – $89.2 billion
Wealthiest People in 2022
For some reason we expected Mark Zuckerberg to be higher on this list. After all, Facebook couldn’t buy Instagram. But while the use of social media is increasing, it is still quite clear that companies dealing with energy and jazz are on top. FYI, if you want to know how Zuckerberg got started – there’s a movie about it.
Steve Ballmer – $69.7 billion
Wealthiest People in 2023
He is another very rich person, and Steve is the CEO of Microsoft. He also owns a basketball team – the Los Angeles Clippers. You know, owning an NBA team is a very lucrative side hustle.
Elon Musk – $69.2 billion
Wealthiest People in the world
Being the founder of Paypal, SpaceX, and CEO of Telsa, of course he is a wealthy person. Elon is a talented engineer, industrial designer, and successful entrepreneur. He’s also quite a controversial figure, but so you know, when you’re rich, you can be quirky.
Larry Page – $67.8 billion
Larry is one of the founders of Google. He is a computer guru and entrepreneur, and considering we all use Google in our entire lives, as well as once a day, it’s no surprise that the founder of the company is one of the world’s richest people.
Sergey Brin – $66 billion
Sergey is the second half of the Google co-founder duo. Clearly, he and Larry are excellent business partners. He was the president of Alphabet, the parent company of Google, while Larry was the CEO. Both relinquished their titles in 2019.
