Francoise Bettencourt Meyers: World’s Richest Woman Is $2.5 Billion Richer Than Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg.
The world’s wealthiest woman is now $2.5 billion richer than Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook.
According to the Bloomberg billionaire index, Francoise Bettencourt Meyers has a net worth of $63.4 billion. While Mark Zuckerberg, who has lost roughly $60 billion year-to-date, has a net worth of $60.9 billion. After falling out of the top 10 in March, Zuckerberg is now placed No. 17 on the list of top billionaires, while Francoise Bettencourt Meyers is ranked 16th.
The drops can be ascribed to quickly growing inflation which has slowed the world’s largest economy as observers wait to learn how much the Federal Reserve will hike interest rates later today. The staggering losses came despite a massive increase in their wealth during the outbreak last year, as businesses thrived as restrictions were eased.
