Who Just Became 2nd Richest Man In The World?

Elon Musk, has reportedly surpassed Bill Gates, effectively making him the 2nd richest person in the world. This news comes only a week following Musk’s overtaking of Mark Zuckerberg’s position as 3rd richest.

 

The recent surge in price of Tesla’s shares increased Musk’s net worth by $7.2 billion USD, placing it now at $127.9 billion USD. This rise has now placed Musk just behind Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos according to Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index. With last week’s announcement that Tesla will be included in the S&P 500 index, the market value of Tesla is currently headed for the $500 billion USD mark.

 

3/4ths of Elon Musk’s net worth is the result of his efforts with Tesla, meanwhile Musk is also working on SpaceX which only last week saw 4 of its astronauts reach the International Space Station via the Falcon Rocket and Dragon Capsule with the assistance of NASA.

 

This week saw Zuckerberg fall behind LVMH Chairman & CEO Bernard Arnault for the position of 4th richest person in the world and leaving Zuckerberg in position 5.
