The figures come from the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. This mostly reflects the fact that stock growth has resumed following decreases the previous year.

The S&P 500 Index increased by 16% in the first half of the year, while the NASDAQ 100 Index increased by 39%.

Elon Musk, who reclaimed his title as the richest man in the world in May, saw the highest growth in his wealth. His wealth now stands at $234 billion, a rise of $96.6 billion. Mark Zuckerberg, whose fortune increased by $58.9 billion to $104 billion during the past six months, is in second position.
