Elon Musk Already Earns the Same As Bill Gates and Warren Buffett Together By Investing.com


By Laura Sánchez

Investing.com – Elon Musk leads the world ranking of billionaires. Not only is the CEO of Tesla (NASDAQ 🙂 and SpaceX currently the richest person in the world, but he is now worth as much as fellow billionaires Bill Gates and Warren Buffett put together.

Musk’s net worth is $ 230 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Gates is fourth with 130 billion and Buffett is number 10 with 102 billion.

Both Gates and Buffett previously ranked first. Musk has thus given the ‘surprise’ to Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon (NASDAQ :), Jeff Bezos, to become the richest man in the world. Bezos held this title since 2017. Currently, his fortune is 191,000 million dollars.

Musk has added more than $ 60 billion to his fortune this year thanks to the strong performance of Tesla shares, as well as a recent sale of shares in SpaceX, which valued the company at $ 100 billion. The deal with SpaceX added $ 11 billion to Musk’s net worth, according to Bloomberg.

As you recall CNBC, Gates and Buffett would be significantly closer to Musk in wealth rankings were it not for their philanthropic donations. Both have donated tens of billions of dollars to charitable causes over the years, while Musk has been criticized for his meager donations.
