Elon Musk is No Longer the World’s Richest Person

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, is no longer the wealthiest man in the world. At Monday’s end, according to Forbes, he turned over that position to Bernard Arnault, chairman, and CEO of LVMH.

The value of Tesla shares has more than halved this year, partly because of a sell-off that escalated after Musk’s $44 billion purchase of Twitter. Shares ended the day down nearly 6.3%.

The rapid surge in Tesla’s share price, which soared more than 1,000% in two years, was the driving force behind Musk’s riches, mostly related to the company’s stock.

According to FactSet data, musk currently holds 14.11% of Tesla’s outstanding shares, which have a market value of $530 billion. According to a $125 billion private market estimate from June 2022, Musk also owns more than 40% of the shares of SpaceX, boosting his net worth by millions of dollars on paper.

In 2022, a year when equities have fallen, shares of LVMH have only lost 1.5%. Based in Paris, LVMH is listed on the Euronext Paris exchange.

Musk’s fortune also trails Arnault’s, according to the most recent version of the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, which employs somewhat different techniques.
