Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos is reportedly on his way to living that four comma club life as the world’s first ever trillionaire
Despite an economy-crushing global pandemic and the $38 billion he lost in his
divorce to his ex-wife MacKenzie Bezos, if Jeff Bezos’ personal fortune keeps
growing at its current rate, he could be the first trillionaire by 2026 at the age of 62,
Bezos’ wealth has been increasing at an average yearly rate of 34% over the past
five years, according to an analysis from the software-review site Comparisun.
So, what Comparisun did was look at 25 of the richest people and found that only 11
had a realistic shot at becoming trillionaires during their lifetimes.
And as they see it, Bezos will likely get there first, but there’s someone else we
should have our eye on and that person is Mark Zuckerberg.
The Facebook CEO could be the youngest trillionaire, with his current growth rate on
pace to make him a trillionaire by 2036. He will be 51 years old.
Comparisun used Forbes’ billionaire list to determine Bezos’ personal wealth, using
data from September, meaning its analysis doesn’t account for the gains Bezos has
seen through Amazon’s success during the coronavirus pandemic.
Amazon’s stock has skyrocketed as more people turn to online shopping while cooped up at home.
Bezos is currently worth about $138 billion and has seen his fortune grow by $28.3 billion in 2020, according to Bloomberg.
