Elon Musk Overtakes Bernard Arnault as the World’s Richest

Elon Musk has now become the world’s wealthiest business magnate, surpassing Bernard Arnault, the CEO of LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy). This shift in rankings can be attributed to the fluctuations in Tesla’s stock, causing Musk’s net worth to climb.

According to Forbes’ real-time billionaires list, Arnault’s net worth currently stands at $207 billion (approximately INR 17.20 lakh crore), while Elon Musk’s net worth is $204 billion (approximately INR 16.96 lakh crore). Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos holds the third position with a net worth of around INR 15.04 lakh crore.

Notably, among the top ten, there is no representation from any Indian billionaire. Mukesh Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Industries, holds the 11th position with a net worth of $104 billion (approximately INR 8.64 lakh crore). Gautam Adani is ranked 16th, with a total wealth of $75 billion (approximately INR 6.23 lakh crore).
