Top 10 Richest Man in The World 2021
Forbes has recently released the list of the top 10 richest men in the world. Unsurprisingly, the majority of the men on the list are from America and mainland China, with only one from the United Kingdom.
we have our own list of the top 10 richest people in the world. In our list, you will find the richest men and women in the world, as well as the richest billionaires, and all the way down to the richest celebrities. Needless to say, we’re talking about a lot of money.
The top 10 richest people in the world are:
1. Bill Gates
In the late 1990s, Bill Gates was the richest person in the world, with a net worth of $100 billion. That means he was worth almost $1,000 per each person living in his country. Gates had a big head start to his career and was one of the first computer entrepreneurs. He founded Microsoft in 1975. Since then, Microsoft’s net worth has grown to over $300 billion, and that makes him the richest person in the world. (Microsoft’s founder is now worth $84.7 billion.)
2. Carlos Slim Helu
Carlos Slim Helu is a Mexican business magnate, investor, and philanthropist. He is the chairman and chief executive of Telmex, Latin America’s largest telecommunications company. From 2010 to 2013, Slim was ranked as the richest person in the world by Forbes business magazine. He derived his fortune from his extensive holdings in a considerable number of Mexican companies through his conglomerate, Grupo Carso. As of March 2013, he was # 7 on the Forbes list of billionaires with a net worth estimated at US$53 billion.
3. Warren Buffet
Chances are you’ve heard of the name Warren Buffet; he’s the second richest man in the world, with a net worth of over $60 billion. Yet for years he’s been one of the world’s most frugal billionaires. He lives in the same house he bought in 1958, drives a modest Cadillac, and eats at McDonald’s. He also doesn’t have a huge staff: he does his own cooking and cleans his own house. For years Buffet has been one of the most generous philanthropists, donating billions to charity. He was brought up in very poor, working class family, and worked odd jobs as a child to help support his family.
4. Amancio Ortega
With a net worth of $85.3 billion, Amancio Ortega Gaona is currently the richest man in the world. The founder of Zara, Ortega has built a fashion empire with more than 6,500 stores in 88 countries across the globe. Ortega owes his success to a handful of traits that have led him to the top.
5. Larry Ellison
Larry Ellison, the founder of Oracle, is one of the most successful businessmen in the world. Since he founded Oracle in 1977, the company has gone from a small start-up to a publicly-traded multinational corporation with a market capitalization of over $150 billion (the company is currently worth about $160 billion). He is also a philanthropist, having given over $200 million to charitable causes, including over $115 million to medical research.
6. Jeff Bezos
If you want to be rich, you need to be ruthless and determined. Billionaire Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com, is a perfect example of this. Bezos, who was once called “the Napoleon of the Internet,” has always been a very hard worker. As a college student, he worked at McDonald’s and was often the highest performer at the restaurant. He graduated from Princeton in 1986 with degrees in computer science and electrical engineering. After graduation, he worked at a hedge fund in New York, but within a short time, Bezos decided that working for someone else wasn’t for him.
7. Mark Zuckerberg
Mark Elliot Zuckerberg is an American computer programmer and Internet entrepreneur. He is best known for co-creating the social networking website Facebook, of which he is chief executive officer (CEO) and president. As of March 2012, he is the chairman and chief executive officer of Facebook Inc. His net worth is more than 10 billion USD.
8. Michael Bloomberg
Bloomberg’s father was a school teacher and his mother a librarian, and Bloomberg was born in Boston, Massachusetts. He earned an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from Johns Hopkins University in 1964. Bloomberg started his career at the investment bank Salomon Brothers, where he worked from 1966 to 1981 and became a partner.
9. Charles Koch
He is the CEO of Koch Industries, the second-largest private company in the United States with $98 billion in revenue. He is the 8th richest person in the world, worth tens of billions of dollars. So, how did Charles Koch get so rich?
10. Sergey Brin
Sergey Brin is the co-founder of Google, and while he may not be the richest man in the world anymore, he still has more money than most of us. He got his start in the tech world while still in school, when he and pal Larry Page started a search engine they named after their favorite player in chess, Gary Kasparov. The site was called BackRub, and while it was a hit with fellow students, the search engine struggled to generate enough money to pay for its bandwidth bills. It wasn’t until the pair renamed the site Google and started charging users that their fortunes changed.
There are a lot of rich people out there, but there are a few who are so rich they could buy every other human on earth something nice and still have plenty left over for themselves. Together, these people control a sum total of wealth so enormous it cannot be accurately accounted for, with estimates ranging from “a zillion” to “a whole lot”. These are the top ten richest men in the world.
