Microsoft cofounder and philanthropist Bill Gates has officially surpassed Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos as the world’s richest person with a net worth of $110 Bn, according to the latest Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Perhaps unsurprisingly, only one Indian features among the top-50 billionaires. Reliance Industries’ chairman Mukesh Ambani was once again the richest Indian, according to Bloomberg.
Bezos was knocked off his perch as the world’s wealthiest man last month after Amazon’s less-than-stellar Q3 results meant the Amazon founder lose nearly $7 Bn in stock value. Bezos was second on the list after topping it in 2018 with a net worth of $160 Bn.
