Jeff Bezos is already the richest man in the world. Now his net worth has skyrocketed once again, setting another new record.
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, the CEO of Amazon’s assets reached $ 202 billion on Wednesday as the company’s shares rose. This is $ 87 billion since January.
Bezos’ luck with his grip on Amazon was inspired by the explosive increase. According to refinitive data, the company’s stock has risen 25% in the past three months and 86% this year.
Bezos, who founded Amazon in 1994, continues to break records with his fortunes. In 2017, he became the richest man on the planet. Last month, his estimated net worth reached nearly $ 172 billion, indicating a new world standard.
Billionaires are not alone – other tech tycoons are becoming more affluent throughout the epidemic because their companies are increasing demand for goods and services.
Earlier this month, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was called a “centibillionaire” because he has more than $ 100 billion in assets. Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla with a net worth of $ 96 billion, is close to achieving that extraordinary status. It was already created by Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft.
And Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook also recently became a billionaire because his company shares – now the most valuable in the world – have risen. Cook is a rare example of an executive who did not help his company get into the super rich ranks.
Although Amazon is Bezos’ biggest asset, it is not the only major brand to oversee. Outside the company, Bezos also owns Blue Origin, a space travel company he founded in 2000, and The Washington Post, a newspaper he acquired in 2013.
