Jeff Bezos has regained the title of the world’s richest person, surpassing luxury tycoon Bernard Arnault. With a net worth of $209 billion, Bezos is now leading the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. This marks an increase of $32 billion from the start of the year as Amazon shares have risen nearly 25%.

Despite their similar wealth, Bezos and Arnault have very different paths to getting there. Bezos owns Blue Origin, a space exploration company, and holds about 9% of Amazon through SEC filings. Meanwhile, Arnault is the CEO and chairman of LVMH Moet Hennessy.

Bezos briefly overtook Musk as the world’s richest person in March, and he has also been known for his charitable giving. He recently donated $117 million to fund preschools he founded and has pledged to donate the majority of his wealth to charity by 2022. Jensen Huang, CEO of Nvidia, also saw a significant rise on the rich list, moving up to 14th place with a fortune of $107 billion thanks to Nvidia’s large holdings.

Representatives for Bezos at Amazon did not respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
