Elon Musk has overtaken French-born fashion icon, Bernard Arnault to become the world’s richest person on earth, following the end of Wednesday’s trading session.

This is according to the Bloomberg Billionaires balance sheet, which estimates that the net worth of Tesla’s Elon Musk is now worth around $192 billion, while LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault has a net worth of $187 billion.

The two “centi-billionaires,” as those worth above $100 billion are known, had been competing for the top slot for months.

How Elon Musk regained status

Arnault’s fortune fell this week after LVMH shares fell on Wednesday, according to calculations by the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Mr. Arnault overtook Mr. Musk in December as his fortune expanded with the luxury-sales boom that helped boost LVMH’s share price. LVMH is one of the world’s largest companies, with brands such as Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Celine. Meanwhile, Mr. Musk’s wealth is directly tied to that of electric car maker Tesla, which has helped him climb the world’s billionaire list by leaps and bounds in recent years. His biggest asset is the company’s stock, which he owns about 13% of, according to Bloomberg.

Besides Tesla, Musk is the CEO of the space exploration company SpaceX and the owner of the social network Twitter. LVMH shares are up 19.7% year-to-date, while Tesla shares are up 65.6% year-to-date.

Tesla shares closed Wednesday at $203.93, up 1.38%.(www.naija247news.com).
