Bernard Arnault fällt auf dritten Platz der Reichen im Milliardärsclub

By Ninian Carter

October 17, 2023 - Bernard Arnault, Gründer und CEO von LVMH, ist in der Liga der Milliardäre auf den dritten Platz gefallen, da der Boom nach der Pandemie für Luxusgüter nachlässt.

Bernard Arnault has lost his spot as the world’s second-richest person to Amazon’s Jeff Bezos.

Arnault, the founder and CEO of French luxury goods powerhouse LVMH – owner of brands such as Louis Vuitton and Moet & Chandon – has seen his wealth fall by nearly $7 billion in a week, due to softer than expected sales growth.

The slump in Arnault’s fortune reflects sluggish sales bedevilling the luxury goods sector amid cooling demand from inflation-weary western nations and an unstable economic recovery in China.

Arnault is now worth $155bn, just below Bezos’s $156bn – but both a long way behind the world’s richest person, Elon Musk, who is worth $234bn.
