Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos might just be the world’s first trillionaire.
According to research experts, Jeff Bezos, whose fortune is estimated at $143 billion, up from $125 billion in April, might just be the world’s first trillionaire.
Comparisun, a small-business advice platform Said: “Bezos is still “by the far the richest person and his network has grown by 34% on average over the last five years, which could potentially see him become the world’s first trillionaire as early as 2026, at which point he’ll be aged 62”.
While companies have been badly affected by the coronavirus pandemic, there has been a drastic increase in Amazons profits.
Amazon hit an all-time high in April and topped $1.1 trillion. The company boosted Bezos’ net worth by $6.4 billion.
According to Forbes Rich List, his annual growth rate will make him a trillionaire within in the next six years, despite losing an estimated $38 billion as part of his recent divorce.
Jeff Bezos has been the world’s richest person since 2017. He also is one of the world’s five richest people who hasn’t lost money this year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Note that if his net worth reaches $1 trillion, he’d be worth more than the individual GDPs of 179 countries with a combined population of 3.4 billion which is 43.7% of all humans alive.
