The business tycoon has actually been a billionaire for well over a decade, but is newly edging forward to rise above the 2 men that have more prominently held the top spot, Bezos, and Musk.

CEO World credits Arnault’s long-time involvement in big brands as being the catalyst behind his push to this level of wealth. “He oversees an empire that includes many iconic French luxury brands, including; Christian Dior, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Loro Piana, Kenzo, Celine, Fenty, Princess Yachts, and Bulgari. “

It doesn’t stop there, his luxury group, LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy), also happens to include spirits, a variety of cosmetic lines, fragrances, watches, and of course, jewelry. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, with other hospitality-based ventures under the umbrella as well.’

Time will tell how long Arnault can retain his position as the wealthiest man in the world, but for now, the spotlight is all his.
