World’s richest man, Jeff Bezos has added a whooping sum of $13 billion to his already staggering net worth on Monday, the largest single-day jump for an individual since the Bloomberg Billionaires Index was created in 2012.
According to Times, Amazon.com shares arose with 73% this year after surging 7.9%, the most since December 2018 on rising optimism about web shopping trends.
The 56-year-old Amazon founder has seen his fortune swell $74 billion in 2020 to $189.3 billion, despite the U.S. entering its worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.
He’s now personally worth more than the market valuation of giants such as Exxon Mobil Corp., Nike Inc. and McDonald’s Corp. Mackenzie Bezos, his ex-wife, gained $4.6 billion Monday and is now the 13th-richest person in the world.
Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg has added almost $15 billion to his net worth so far this year, even as the company deals with brands boycotting ads on the social network.
