His other holdings include his champagne company Armand de Brignac, in which LVMH acquired a 50% stake two years ago, his collection of Jean-Michel Basquiat paintings, his investments in Block and Uber, and his music archive. His wealth increased from $1.4 billion USD in 2022. LVMH’s Bernard Arnault tops this year’s list with $222.9 billion USD. Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos both reached the top 10.
