Founder Of Amazon, Jeff Bezos Overtakes Bill Gates To Become World’s Richest Man

JEFF-BEZOZ-AMAZON-CVThe founder of Amazon has overtaken Microsoft’s Bill Gates to claim the title of world’s richest person.

Jeff Bezos leapfrogged Gates, who has been the richest man on the planet since 2013, after a rise in the share price of Amazon ahead of its latest results due later on Thursday.

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 and at the current values, Bezos’s stake is twice as big as the carmarker Ford.
