World Richest Man, Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, has set a new record after he added $13 billion to his fortune on Monday, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

Brandnewsday reports that Amazon.com shares surged 7.9%, the highest December 2018 on rising optimism about web shopping trends, and are now up by 73% this year.

Bezos’ record was the largest single-day jump for an individual since the Bloomberg Billionaires Index was established in 2012.

Amazon’s 56-year-old founder and the world’s richest person, has seen his fortune swell $74 billion in 2020 to $189.3 billion, despite the U.S. entering its worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.

Thus Bezos’s fortune alone is now personally worth more than the market valuation of giants such as Nike Inc., Exxon Mobil Corp. and McDonald’s Corp.

Meanwhile, his previous record was set in 2018, before his divorce with his ex-wife, Mackenzie Bezos.

Mackenzie, his ex-wife, gained $4.6 billion Monday as she now sits as the 13th-richest person in the world.

Also, Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Officer, Mark Zuckerberg has added almost $15 billion to his net worth, despite 160 giants brands boycotting ads on its platforms.

This news medium had reported that Bezos outshined Bill Gates, owner of Microsoft, to become the richest man in the world in June 2020.
