Jeff Bezos and his ex-wife, MacKenzie, have just finalized the most expensive divorce in history with a settlement of $36 billion, and despite the substantial loss the Amazon CEO is still the richest person in the world.

Bezos current fortune is down from $150 billion to $114 billion after agreeing to let MacKenzie retain 4% of Amazon’s outstanding common stock, yet that still places him well ahead of Bill Gates who’s the world’s second most wealthy individual with a fortune of $102 billion.  Bloomberg’s Billionaire’s Index compiles its list by taking into account public company fortunes, ownership of private companies (when applicable), and liquid assets, while Bezos wealth is said to be unique due to how concentrated it is.

“If you look at his fortune, about 90% of it is in public shares,” Bloomberg wealth reporter Tom Metcalf recently stated, “His biggest assets outside of Amazon are Blue Origin, which is an interesting company to value because there is not a lot of public data, and the Washington Post.”  

Additionally, Metcalf estimates that Amazon’s stock would have to reach about $2,500 per share for Bezos to recover the money he’s giving up in the divorce settlement, which is roughly 37% higher than current levels. Meanwhile, MacKenzie Bezos $36 billion dollar net-worth now makes her the fourth richest woman in the world, behind Mars candy heiress Jacqueline Mars ($37.1 billion), Walmart heiress Alice Walton ($44.2 billion), and L’Oreal heiress Françoise Bettencourt Meyers who is the wealthiest woman in the world with a fortune of $53.7 billion.
