According to American business magazine Forbes, we can see the list of top richest persons in the world. They become a top listed billionaire for their successful business.
1. Jeff Bezos (Net worth: $112 billion)
Jeff Bezos is the founder and CEO of Amazon.com and he is the owner of The Washington Post. His successful business strategy has made him one of the top richest people in the world. He is an American entrepreneur.
In 1994, Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in a garage in Seattle, after his retirement from hedge funds giant DE Shaw. In fact, he originally introduced the idea of an online bookstore to his former manager, David E. Shaw (a rumor that Shaw himself would have confirmed) that he was not interested.
Although Amazon.com has started selling books, it has since become a one-stop shop for everything under the sun and perhaps even the largest retailer in the world. In any case, it is difficult to question their self-description as a “company with the greatest customer care for the Earth”. The trend of continued diversification is reflected in some of its recent unanticipated improvements, including the acquisition of Whole Foods in 2017 and the launch of its own over-the-counter medications in February 2018.
Bezos became public with Amazon in 1997 and has since become the first man since Bill Gates in 1999 to have earned more than $ 100 billion in net worth. Other Bezos projects include aerospace company Blue Origin, the Washington Post (which he bought in 2013) and the 10,000-year-old watch, also known as Long Now.
1. Bill Gates (Net worth: $90 billion)
Bill Gates is a co-founder of Microsoft Corporation and one of the richest men in the world. Thanks to Microsoft, Gates has contributed to the development of the personal computer by providing an operating system that can run on various computers. Gates also extends Microsoft’s reach beyond the operating system for browsers, media players, search engines, web-based email, and other software applications.
Bill Gates, one of Harvard’s top-five defectors, is surprisingly good at getting riches, even for a wealthy man. The assets of the co-founder of Microsoft have more than doubled since 2009.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has also spent billions of dollars fighting polio and malaria. He also pledged $ 50 million in 2014 to fight the Ebola virus. Bill Gates is currently a board member of Microsoft and Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
3. Warren Buffett (Net worth: $84 billion)
Warren Buffet, the most successful investor in the Living Value sector, filed his first income tax return in 1944, at the age of 14, explaining his earnings from his childhood. He first bought shares in a textile company called Berkshire Hathaway in 1962 and became a majority shareholder in 1965. In 1967, he expanded the company’s insurance and other investments to more than $ 300,000 per share at the beginning of 2019.
Warren Buffett is widely known as “The Oracle of Omaha” because he can invest in value, in other words, to find contracts in undervalued companies. While most investors have invested in social media companies, Buffett has repeatedly stated that it was too difficult to determine his value and instead made investments that he said would be written off in the future. He is also a well-known skeptic of Bitcoin. Warren Buffet is also known for its frugality. At the age of 14, he gave his bike a tax deduction of $ 35 on his first tax return for use on his printed itinerary.
He donates a large part of his fortune to charity and declares that he does not intend to leave his fortune to his children. Between 2006 and 2017, Buffet returned nearly $ 28 billion and promised to deliver all of its assets.
