Meet The World’s Rich­est

Forbes - - The Top 20 -

THE RANKS OF the planet’s 20 wealth­i­est shuf­fled over the last year, with only Bill Gates (No. 1) and War­ren Buf­fett (No. 3) hold­ing their spots. Spain’s Aman­cio Ortega of fash­ion re­tailer Zara moved from fourth to se­cond, swap­ping places with Car­los Slim Helu; the Mex­i­can mag­nate lost $27.1 bil­lion last year, more than any­one else.

Ama­zon’s Jeff Be­zos and Face­book’s Mark Zucker­berg, each a big gainer, joined the top 10 for the first time, while Buf­fett’s Brazil­ian part­ner, Jorge Paulo Le­mann, and Chi­nese in­vestor Wang Jian­lin—who owns AMC En­ter­tain­ment Hold­ings and is buy­ing moviemaker Leg­endary En­ter­tain­ment—made their top 20 de­buts. Al­to­gether, this group is worth $827 bil­lion, or $73 bil­lion (8%) less than last year’s group.
