Bernard Arno, chairman of the LVMH luxury group, surpassed Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and became the second richest person in the world, but stayed behind Jeff Bezos, another founder of Amazon, Forbes magazine Bloomberg.
Forbes, a real-time publisher of billionaire assets, compared Bernard Arno's $ 70.1 billion this week to Bill Gates's $ 103.7 billion.
The founder of the Amazon is the wealthiest person in the world and his wealth is estimated at $ 164.8 billion.
Yesterday, he picked Arno in front of Gates in Bloomberg rankings on Tuesday.
The latter has lost the first two positions in the ranking for the first time since it was first introduced 7 years ago, the agency explained.
According to Bloomberg, Nero owns $ 180 billion in assets and has earned $ 39 billion since the beginning of the year, the highest figure in the world's top 500 in 2019.
In Bloomberg rankings, Arno is more than $ 107 billion more than Gettz (Gates) 's property. Both are overtaken by the Amazon's $ 12.5 billion president.
Unlike Forbes, Bloomberg has already withdrawn $ 38 billion from Bezos real estate, a recent settlement that was completed in early July. His ex-husband, Makenzie Besos, also ranked 22nd in the Bloomberg rankings.
In both lists Warren Buffett and Facebook chairman Mark Zackerberg were in the top five richest countries in the world.
Real estate fluctuates depending on the stock market price, which is inherently subject to change sometime.
