richest man in the world by digital thakur

Forbes updates its billionaire list each month with the names of the wealthiest businessmen in the world based on their total net worth. This list is dynamic and subject to change based on each person’s net worth and asset performance.

The wealthiest people’s net worth may change with market prices since a large portion of their money is invested in publicly traded equities. For instance, Elon Musk, the world’s richest man and creator and CEO of Tesla (TSLA), witnessed a gain in his net worth in 2021 due to a growth in Tesla share price, with Tesla shares climbing by nearly 50% in that year. As of October 2022, he was valued at $207.7 billion.

So, here is the list of the top 10 businessmen as of October 2022.

Musk also serves as the president and chief engineer of the space launch rocket business Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX).

A rise in Tesla stock in 2021 and private transactions that raised SpaceX’s reported value have extended Musk’s lead in the list of the world’s wealthiest people. His wealth reached its high of $340 billion in November 2021.
