Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos's fortune breaks record again by stepping over $ 180 billion

The fortune of the richest man in the world, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, once again renewed a historical record, reaching $ 182.6 billion, Forbes writes .


At the same time, in early July, the Bloomberg agency, citing the Bloomberg Billionaires Index (BBI) rating calculated by it, reported that Bezos’s fortune had increased to a new high of $ 171.6 billion. Thus, since the beginning of July, the indicator updated the record for the second time in a month.

This situation is observed against the background of continued growth in the value of Amazon shares - on Thursday, it grew by 2.7%, to a record $ 3081.11 apiece, and the company's capitalization rose to $ 1.54 trillion. Bezos owns an 11.1% stake in Amazon and has been at the forefront of Forbes richest people since 2017.

In May, Comparisun, a small business consulting company, published its forecast that Bezos has every chance of becoming the first person in the world whose fortune will exceed one trillion dollars by 2026 . According to Forbes magazine, published in early April, Bezos remains the world's richest man for the third year in a row.
