Current 10 richest Men in the world in April 2024 (see list)

As of April 1, the 10 richest people on the planet are worth a combined $1.59 trillion—$28 billion more than a month ago, according to Forbes Real-Time Billionaires.

Elon Musk dropped from second to third while India’s richest person fell out of the top 10 after a brief appearance in March.

Bernard Arnault, the luxury goods tycoon the owner of Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and dozens of other brands, has been the world’s richest person since February thanks to the stellar share performance of his LVMH group.


Just below Arnault, there’s been a battle for second and third richest as Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Amazon Chairman Jeff Bezos flip-flopping spots throughout March— changing places at least a dozen times.

The biggest gainer in March was Oracle cofounder Larry Ellison, whose fortune rose by nearly $16 billion due to a 10% jump in the price of the software giant’s shares.

Ellison is currently the world’s fifth richest person, having been overtaken by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg in March.

Forbes has been keeping track of the world’s billionaires since 1987.
