Who is Bill Gates: Second Richest Person in the world?

  • One of the Harvard University dropouts, and the co-founder of "Microsoft", Bill Gates is the second richest person in the world with an estimated net worth of $99.5 billion USD. 
  • Bill Gates is the self-made billionaire who acquired the position of the richest person in 2001 and remained with the title, "The Richest Person in the World" for 16 long years since 2001.
  • Gates made his fortune through Microsoft, the computer company he co-founded in 1975 with Paul Allen. Since then it became the largest PC software company worldwide. He now holds a diversified fortune; less than 12.5% of his net worth comes from Microsoft shares. 
  • The majority of his assets are held in his investment firm, Cascade, including a stake in Berkshire Hathaway.
  • With his wife Melinda Gates(the world's fourth-richest women), Bill Gates chairs the "Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation", the world's largest private charitable foundation.
  • Gates is richer than the richest man in Asia and the richest man in China, combined. He earns about $2.2 million in just one and a half hours, which is a marking for a normal person to learn in a lifetime.  Gates could give every single living person on the planet $10 — and still have more than $30 billion left over.
  • Bill Gates is so rich that an average person spending about $1 is the same as $1.06 million spendings of Gates so one could imagine how rich he is. Gates has remained the second richest person even after donating 27% of his net worth to charity over the years.
  • Last year, Bill Gates has gained an incredible $10 billion in additional net worth. This has put him at an estimated net worth of $98.5 billion overall.
  • However, Gates indulges only in a few luxuries — such as a private plane and a massive Washington home now worth $125 million. He is known for being relatively frugal in his spending.

The billionaire has sayings like:

  •     “Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.”
