Amazon's Jeff Bezos sworn the title of world's richest: Forbes

E-commerce giant Inc Chief Executive Jeff Bezos has dethroned his fellow tech billionaire Bill Gates as the richest person in the globe, earnings from the e-commerce company's sudden stock rise to reach a fortune of $90.6 billion, Forbes reported.

Amazon shares jumped to 1.6 percent at the beginning of trading, boosting the net worth of Bezos - the company's founder and largest shareholder - by $1.4 billion, as per to Forbes, which track the world's wealthiest.

After a recent market close, the stock was up ahead of Amazon's second-quarter earnings. Analysts anticipate the world's major online retailer will report that its sales hopped 22 percent to $37.2 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Bezos, who is a newcomer to the top of Forbes' list, has got assistance from the apparently unlimited development of Amazon into new markets. The once-bookseller strategizes to obtain Whole Foods Market Inc, at the same time it is making pace in the fashion business, Hollywood, enterprise computing and general retail from India to Mexico.

Reuters could not separately confirm the wealth of Bezos or Microsoft Corp's co-founder Gates. A humanitarian, Gates has given $31.1 billion to charitable causes through 2016 and has a net worth of $90.1 billion, Forbes said.
