Less than two years after having already won second place on the podium, Bernard Arnault, the boss of the luxury giant LVMH, became again, this Tuesday, the richest man in the world, behind Jeff Bezos, the boss of Amazon, according to Bloomberg ranking.
With 161 billion dollars in fortune, Bernard Arnault, the only Frenchman in the top 10, is very little ahead of Tesla boss Elon Musk, but remains far behind Jeff Bezos and his 190 billion dollars.
Over $ 45 billion in five months
In July 2019, when he took second place in the ranking of the richest personalities in the world for the first time, the fortune of the boss of LVMH was estimated at 108 billion dollars.
And if the Frenchman climbs onto the second step of the podium, it is first of all because the fortune of the boss of Tesla lost three billion dollars on Monday. On the side of Bernard Arnaud, his heritage has swelled by $ 47 billion since January – including 285 million since Monday – an increase of 40%.
