The richest billionaires in the world are not as rich as they used to be. But they are still quite rich.
In the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, the world’s 2,095 billionaires own a total of $ 8 trillion, a reduction of $ 700 billion compared to 2019, according to the Forbes list of billionaires.
We have narrowed this ranking down to the 15 richest billionaires on the list, who have a total of $ 940.1 billion together. This is a fairly diverse group; some have built their fortunes through retail giants, while others have gotten rich off their technological innovations. The youngest of the top 15, Mark Zuckerberg, is only 35, while the oldest, Warren Buffett, is 89.
