A tech giant might be the world’s first trillionaire. His name? No other than Bill Gates.
According to a research firm, Oxfam International (An international network of organizations collectively working to alleviate global poverty), the world could get its first trillionaire in the next 25 years, when Bill Gates becomes 86 years old. At the moment, he is $915.6 billion away from attaining that title, but new research suggests he’s closer than you might think. Interestingly, we had 793 billionaires worldwide in 2009, by 2016, the richest 793 people maintained net worths of $5 trillion — an annual growth of 11%.
In other words, if Bill Gates can somehow sustain the rapid growth of his business for the next 25 years, the world will see the first confirmed trillionaire — a word that is still not in the dictionary.
