Elon Musk remains the richest person in the world

Musk has a net worth of $245.3 billion. Bernard Arnault and Jeff Bezos are still second and third in the ranking.

The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, managed to keep his spot as the richest person in the world in November thanks, in part, to the increase in the stock market value of the companies he owns. As reported by Forbes, Musk’s fortune increased by $28 billion. He is currently worth $245.3 billion.

He regained his status as the richest person on the planet in June, when, with $70 billion of profit, Musk managed to surpass founder and CEO of the luxury business corporation LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Bernard Arnault.

The French businessman’s position in the ranking did change either. Arnault is still the second-richest person. He is worth $191.3 billion, up from $178 billion the previous month.

With properties valued at $168.4 billion, Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, ranked as the third-highest billionaire, just ahead of Larry Ellison, co-founder and CEO of Oracle Corporation, whose fortune is valued at $146.5 billion.

After the four of them is the president of Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffett ($119.3 billion) followed by former CEO of Microsoft, Bill Gates ($117.6 billion). Next is the CEO of Meta Platforms, Mark Zuckerberg ($115.9 billion); Steve Ballmer, also a former CEO of Microsoft ($112.8 billion); Alphabet CEO Larry Page ($111.7 billion); and Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google ($107.3 billion).
