Jeff Bezos overtook Tesla founder Elon Musk and became the richest person in the world again. The assessment, published this Tuesday (5), is from the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, which placed the Amazon founder’s fortune at US$200 billion. Musk came in second place in the ranking, with an estimated net worth of US$197.7 billion.

The Bloomberg index is updated daily. The change in ranking was the result of the 7% drop in Tesla shares, which caused a small decrease in Musk’s billionaire wealth. Bezos’ fortune, in turn, has increased due to the sale of more than $82.5 billion in Amazon shares in recent weeks.

In third place in the Bloomberg survey is Frenchman Bernard Arnault, president of the luxury group LVMH (owner of the Sephora, Hennessy, Dior and Louis Vuitton brands), with assets of US$197 billion. Both he, Musk and Bezos have been competing with each other for the top of the ranking in recent months, always appearing in the top positions.

See the top 10 of the world‘s biggest billionaires, according to Bloomberg:

Jeff Bezos: $200 billion
Elon Musk: US$198 billion
Bernard Arnault: US$197 billion
Mark Zuckerberg: $179 billion
Bill Gates: $150 billion
Steve Ballmer: $143B billion
