With the beginning of 2023, American billionaire Elon Musk broke the world record for the largest loss of personal wealth in history.
And the Guinness Book of Records issued a statement announcing that Musk had become the “biggest loser of personal wealth in history,” and estimates of his loss last year ranged between $183 billion and $200 billion.
Masayoshi Son, a Japanese billionaire and founder of Softbank, had held the title for several years until Elon Musk surpassed him. Unlike Musk’s net worth losses of $58.6 billion, Son’s were notably lower.
The wealth of the founder of Tesla reached its highest level ever in November 2021 when it reached $ 340 billion, but the shares of the electric car company then fell by about 65% over the past year.
According to these losses, Elon Musk lost the title of the richest man in the world to French billionaire Bernard Arnault.
