If Jeff Bezos' fortune continues to grow as it currently does, then he will become the world's first trillionaire in 2026. That's where Comparison's studies came from.
Bezos' wealth has grown by approximately 34% per year in the last 5 years. It seems that neither the 28% drop in Amazon's profits from last year nor the divorce from his wife MacKenzie Bezos, which cost him a large part of his fortune, have "dethroned" the richest man in the world.
Comparisun published the 25 richest people in the world, but only 11 of them can become trillionaires in their lifetime. Most likely, Bezos will be the first, but Facebook CEO Marc Zuckerberg will be the youngest.
If the pandemic negatively affected many businesses, for Amazon the opposite happened, as people turned to online shopping more than ever.
According to Bloomberg, Bezos has a fortune of $ 138 billion and that fortune has grown by $ 28.3 billion this year. If his fortune continues to grow, then at the age of 62, Bezos will be the world's first trillionaire.
