Forbes is quite dedicated when it comes to maintaining the list featuring the World’s richest people. After all, it requires very hard work to track stocks, personal investments, companies market cap and many other factors. All of which are then finally scrutinized and analyzed before ranking individual on these fixed parameters.
Every year, leaving a few names, there is a significant change in their list. It due to the fact that we live in a very volatile world with no exact way to predict the future. And as the future is not precisely predictable, not even individual’s net worth is predictable or fixed. These changes reflect the changing trend, which makes it more interesting.
Biggest winners in between 2016 and 2017 were Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg. All thanks to the rising stock price of their respective companies Amazon and Facebook, that their net worth has seen a significant boost. If the current trend follows then soon Jeff Bezos might be the richest person in the world, surpassing Bill Gates, while even Zuckerberg could be the possible winner in the future. Also, these trends make the race for the first trillion dollar company much more interesting, which already have Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft and Google as core contender.
So let’s begin our list for the richest businessmen at present.
