Elon Musk is once again the richest man in the world

According to Bloomberg Billionaires Index, which monitors the fortunes of the 500 richest people in the world, Elon Musk is once again the richest man in the world. Musk had first captured the title of richest man in the world in January 2021 and has since swapped his position several times with both Arnault and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

The founder of SpaceX, Tesla, The Boring Company, Neuralink and OpenAI has again managed to surpass the fashion taicoon Bernard Arnault. The head-to-head between the two billionaires has been going on for a while, but once again Musk has managed to get the upper hand.

Musk has a net worth of $192 billion, according to Bloomberg data, thanks to the increase in Tesla's share price, which rose 26% in May alone. This coincided with the arrival of Linda Yaccarino to the position of CEO of Twitter, as investors flocked to Tesla stock speculating that Musk would have more time to devote to the auto company.

As for the second in the standings, we can say that he's not doing too badly. The French tycoon's total net worth now stands at $187 billion, according to Bloomberg. He remains comfortably the second richest person in the world, ahead of Bezos, who is worth $144 billion.

Arnault, on the other hand, we can say that he's not doing too badly. The French tycoon's total net worth now stands at $187 billion, according to Bloomberg. He remains comfortably the second richest person in the world, ahead of Bezos, who is worth $144 billion.

Bill Gates, Oracle CTO Larry Ellison, former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, investment legend Warren Buffett, Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg round out the top 10. The collapse of the French conglomerate's shares, which effectively wiped out more than 5 billion dollars from Arnault's personal fortune, and at the same time, Musk's wealth increased by almost 2 billion dollars thanks to the gains he took home with Tesla, have led to this final verdict.
