Richest man alive
The fortune of US entrepreneur Elon Musk has increased by $32.6bn to $304.2bn over the day as a result of a significant rise in his Tesla stock. This was revealed by Forbes' real-time billionaire ranking.
Musk as a result has once again become the man with a fortune of more than $300 billion. In November 2021, he had already achieved such a result the first time in history. Before the rise in Tesla shares on Monday, Musk was already the richest man on the planet, but now he has widened the gap with his nearest rival, which remains the CEO of French group LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) Bernard Arnault with a fortune of $200.6 billion.
It is worth noting that in October 2021 the fortune of the American engineer and entrepreneur Elon Musk has jumped to 270 billion amid rising prices of shares of his company Tesla. Thus, the businessman became the richest man in the history of Forbes magazine calculations.
Tesla shares rose 13.53% to $1,199.78 a share on Monday the first day of trading on the New York Stock Exchange this year amid Sunday's announcement of record growth in electric car deliveries through 2021. The company sent 936,172 electric cars to customers, an 87% increase over 2020. For news on Monday's Tesla stock, visit our website in the News section or click here.
