Bill Gates Net Worth 2017

Bill Gates Warren Buffett and Jeff Bezos top the Forbes Billionaires list

From titan investors to the reigning royalty of the tech world, the usual suspects tend to top the list and consistently make the cut year after year, from Bill Gates to Warren Buffett.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was number five and Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison was number seven.

Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates has defended his title as richest man in the world yet again, meaning that he has now taken the Forbes' top spot for four consecutive years.

Mr Gates' fortune was estimated at $75bn a year ago.

His net worth is $8.2 billion.

Hart is the second wealthiest person in Australasia, with mining tycoon Gina Rinehart the richest, ranking at No 69 on the Forbes list with a wealth estimated at US$15b ($21b).

Jeff Bezos: The CEO and founder of e-commerce giant Amazon, Bezos' current net worth is $73.8 billion.

As the New York's real estate market has slowed, Forbes began downgrading Trump's net value past year, saying in October that his net worth was down to $3.7 billion.

Neither the White House nor the Trump Organization, which Mr. Trump's sons have run since their father's inauguration, immediately responded to a request for comment on the Forbes list. "What happens in that micromarket does more to affect the net worth of Donald Trump than anything else in the world".

US President Donald Trump came in at No.544 on the list, with a net worth estimated by Forbes of $3.5 billion - double that of Thaksin and behind Thailand's four richest men.

Chandler is worth US$1.91b ($2.7b), a drop from US$2.45b ($3.5b) in 2016.

This puts him more than 200 spots below where he ranked a year ago, with an estimated wealth of $3.5bn.

That's despite the fact that Trump had claimed during his election campaign that he was worth "in excess of $10 billion". But the list also contained 15 new "self-made" women, mostly from Asian countries, including Vietnam's Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao of budget airline VietJet air.

Last year's second richest person in the world, Spanish clothing chain Zara owner Amancio Ortega fell to forth place, despite gaining $4.3bn to his fortune this year.
