Ranked: The World’s Richest Billionaires Over the Past 10 Years
The last decade has seen a number of changes in the world’s richest billionaires list.
For one, there are new faces at the top of the leaderboard that were never there before. One of the most obvious changes though, is that the richest billionaires have accumulated a lot more wealth in recent years.
Using annual data from Forbes on the richest billionaires, we’ve visualized the wealth and ranking of the top 10 billionaires over the past decade.
Who are the World’s Richest Billionaires?
While the pecking order has fluctuated, the leaderboard remains very exclusive. Out of a possible 10 spots, there are only 19 individuals that have made the list over the last decade.
Here’s the current list of richest billionaires in 2022, including when they first made the list (if in the last decade):
|Rank||Name||Country||Net Worth (2022)||First Year on List*|
|#1||Elon Musk||U.S.||$219 billion||2021|
|#2||Jeff Bezos||U.S.||$171 billion||2016|
|#3||Bernard Arnault||France||$158 billion||-|
