Arnault topped Forbes’ list of the world’s wealthiest individuals in 2021, with a net worth of $185.4 billion, after momentarily swapping places with No. 3 Bezos (Musk was worth $185.3 billion at the time, and the duo have traded positions ever since).

Musk reclaimed first place around 12:30 EST. Given that the two men’s net worths are only $200 million apart, it is not surprising that they will continue to fluctuate in Forbes’ lists of the world’s wealthiest people.

Arnault’s net worth soared by a few hundred million dollars on Wednesday morning as shares of his luxury brand rose.

Below is a list of the Top 10 richest people as at 8th December 2022, 6:00GMT
