Jeff Bezos becomes the first man in history with a net worth of over $200 Billion

Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, CEO Amazon would have surpassed $200b in wealth a long time ago had he not divorced.

at 56, he is already the richest man on planet earth and becomes the first person to hit a net worth of $200 billion. He was ordered to hand over about $38 billion to his ex-wife MacKenzie Bezos as part of the divorce settlement last year. The Bezoses were married for 25 years. They announced divorce last year and have four kids from the marriage.

The divorce did not stop Jeff to transform Amazon into a $1.4 trillion company and an increase in his personal wealth.

The initiative of focusing on making Amazon more climate-friendly and growing his personal real estate empire has helped Jeff Bezos to transform from a NY hedge-funder to establishing one of the most powerful, valuable companies in the world.

Such has been the magnitude of his visionary leadership that this year, amid Covid-19, Jeff added $13 billion to his net worth in one day, a record for the largest single-day increase by an individual.

According to Forbes research, Bezos has also donated about $360 million to charity.
