Bill Gates Is Not World’s Richest Person anymore

Updated | January 11, 2018 17:37 IST

Microsoft Founder Bill Gates has lost the status of world’s richest person which he has been maintaining for the last one decade. Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos has become the richest person in the world after making $6.1 billion in just five trading days in 2018 and is now worth $105 billion.

The Bloomberg Billionaires Index revealed Bezos’ net worth reached $105.1 billion and eclipsed the record previously held by Bill Gates. The sudden increase in Amazon’s share price made the New Mexico-born businessman richer by $1.4 billion.
