Jeff Bezos is an American technology and retail entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist. And he is also best known for the founder of Amazon.com, the world’s largest online shopping retailer.
Now Jeff Bezos over taken Bill Gates world’s richest man title and now acclaimed the title as a new world’s richest man.
According to Bloomberg.com
Shares of the online retailer rose 1.3 percent to $1,065.92 at 10:10 a.m. in New York, giving Bezos a net worth of $90.9 billion, versus $90.7 billion for Gates. If that holds through the 4 p.m. close, Bezos, 53, will leapfrog Gates, the Microsoft Corp. co-founder, on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Gates, 61, has held the top spot since May 2013.
This was so quick comparison done by Bloomberg and that gives the perfect image that Jeff Bezos is the new world’s richest person, who has beaten Bill Gates and took the first spot in 2017.
Now the another research compiled by Forbes, that is
According to a real-time billionaires index compiled by Forbes, the rise pushed the value of Bezos’s fortune to $91bn (£69bn) – compared with Gates’ wealth of $90bn. Their riches are calculated on the share prices of their respective companies.
The direct sign here is that it gives an opportunity to compete in the market and also gives tough competition in the market.
