According to a new study by Comparisun, the Amazon CEO’s monumental fortune is growing at such a rate that he could be the inaugural member of the 13-figure club by 2026.
The business software comparison site looked at Bezos’s average percentage of yearly growth over the past five years—pulling data from the Forbes Billionaires List—to calculate his yearly wealth growth rate. By applying this growth rate over the coming years, the study concluded that Bezos would reach trillionaire status at the age of 62.
As of Thursday morning, Bezos’s net worth was estimated at $143 billion, according to Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index, which means it’s increased more than $28 billion since last year. That’s all thanks to his booming online marketplace Amazon, which has seen a surge in sales due to the global Covid-19 quarantines. The company clocked $75.5 billion in revenue for the first quarter of 2020, which is especially good if you have an 11.2 percent stake in the company, like Bezos.
