Zara Boss-Amancio Ortega Overtakes Bill Gates to Become the Richest Person in the World Amancio Ortega

While some of us are always checking the coins in our bank accounts to ensure that we have enough to last us until the next payday, others have more than they can count.

According to Forbes real-time billionaires list, Bill Gates is no more the richest person in the world–as Zara Boss-Amancio Ortega has overtaken him.

Mr Ortega, 80, from Spain who founded the clothing chain Zara from his living room with his ex-wife Rosalia Mera is said to currently sitting on a net worth of $78 billion, overtaking Mr Gates’ estimated net worth of $77.4bn. 

“While he may be the richest person in the world, he reportedly lives a modest lifestyle, eating lunch with his employees in the staff canteen, buying coffee from the same cafe he has visited for years and dressing in the same blazer/shirt combo – neither of which are said to be from Zara. Mr Ortega is guarded about his private life and rarely grants interviews to the press,” says UK’s Independent.
