In first place is Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, as well as owner of X (formerly Twitter).

Valued at US$211 billion, the fortune was boosted by the rise in shares of Amazon, the company founded by Bezos. Since last year, there has been a 130% growth in total. In the “Kantar BrandZ” ranking, the multinational was positioned as the fourth most valuable brand in the world.

Bezos received financial help from his parents – US$300,000 – and was betting on the internet boom based on his previous work experience.
