Amazon founder Jeff Bezos lost $65.3 billion, while Meta owner Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth shrank by $64.4 billion.

Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy group head, Bernard Arnault, has also been unfortunate, having lost $56.8 so far this year.

The coffers of Russian billionaires did not suffer such huge losses, but their fortunes dipped nonetheless.

NOVATEK head Leonid Mikhelson lost $7.29 billion, Severstal owner Alexei Mordashov lost $7.4 billion, and the wealth of former Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich fell by $5.85 billion, Bloomberg estimates.
