Billionaires: Names of the Top twenty  richest men in the world and their net worth.
Amazon boss Jeff Bezos lost his title as the world’s richest person last week – if only for 24 hours.
Shares in the ecommerce giant fell 7% on Thursday after it reported disappointing third-quarter earnings. This pushed Bezos’ fortune down to below that of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, reported Forbes.
However, the Amazon founder’s net worth was back up the following day, restoring his status as the wealthiest person in the world.
According to Forbes: “It’s possible Bezos could lose the crown once more as Amazon continues to invest heavily in infrastructure to support one-day shipping – a delivery time that he hopes will become standard for all Amazon Prime members.”
The magazine adds that Bezos’ fortune is “heavily reliant on the performance of the company he started”, while Gates is “much less dependent on his own creation”.
Here are other top richest people around the globe, their rank and total networth according to the latest figures on Bloomberg billionaire daily index:
