New York: According to Comparisun, a company which allows small to medium sized firms to compare different business products, the world’s first trillionaire is likely to be Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. Comparisun shows Bezos’ net worth grew an average of 34% over the last five years.
The projection shows Bezos reaching trillionaire status by 2026 which is based on taking the average percentage of the yearly growth over the past 5 years and applying it to future years. Amazon has been doing well despite the recession. As demand has increased due to Lockdown, Amazon sales have gone up during this time.
Bezos’s net worth as of Thursday was estimated at $143 billion according to Bloomerberg’s Billionaires Index. Compared to last year, Bezos’ worth has surged by more than $28 billion.
