The 5 Richest People in the World
There’s been a huge fluctuation in the net worth of these billionaires in the past year. But, you can find out more about that below!
The stats given here in regards to net worth have come from Forbes directly. These are the top 25 richest people in the world in 2018:
- Jeff Bezos
His feud with the President of the United States hasn’t made a dent in the Amazon founder’s wealth. According to Bloomberg, Jeff Bezos is worth $133 billion and is the first person – and only – to have a net worth of more than $100 billion.
- Bill Gates
Microsoft has helped Bill Gates top the list of the world’s richest people year after year. Although he’s now in second place, Forbes still estimates his wealth at $92.3 billion.
- Warren Buffett
With a fortune of $85.5 billion according to Bloomberg, Warren Buffett is consistently one of the world’s richest people. The famously philanthropic investor is also known as one of the world’s thriftiest billionaires.
- Bernard Arnault
LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault is worth $84.9 billion, as estimated by Forbes, making him the richest person in Europe. With a bank balance like his, Arnault certainly doesn’t have to worry about getting to and from work in Paris, one of the cities with the world’s most expensive commutes.
- Mark Zuckerberg
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is worth $76.8 billion, according to Bloomberg. Unfortunately the 33-year-old is taken but if you want to marry for money, Jack Dorsey of rival social media company Twitter is one of the billionaires who are single.
