OREANDA-NEWS. The first person whose fortune exceeds 1 trillion US dollars may be Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who is now the richest man on the planet. This is stated in a study of the platform dedicated for small and medium businesses Comparisun.

According to experts, Bezos’s leadership will not be hindered neither by the loss of 38 billion dollars during a divorce, nor by the coronavirus pandemic. His fortune has grown over the past five years at an average rate of 34 % per year. Potentially, this can lead to the fact that he will become the first trillionaire in the world in 2026, when he will be 62 years old. Now, the state of Bezos is estimated at 143.9 billion dollars.

The developer from China Xu Jiayin follows the founder of Amazon in the list of candidates for trillion. According to analysts at Comparisun, he will reach this level a year after Bezos. Alibaba Group founder Jack Ma is in third place, his capital can overcome the trillion mark in 2030.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has a chance of becoming the seventh, but the youngest trillionaire in history. According to the forecast, this will happen in 2036, when he will be 51 years old.
