Elon Musk has passed billions investor Warren Buffet on the list of richest in the world, Bloomberg reports Friday evening.
The 49-year-old Musk is currently the sixth richest person in the world, according to the American news agency. In addition to Buffet, his wealth is also estimated to be higher than that of Google founder Sergey Brin.
Musk's total assets are currently estimated at approximately $ 70.5 billion ($ 62.4 billion). Most of it comes from his Tesla ownership, while his majority stake in SpaceX accounts for about $ 15 billion.
The assets of the founder of Tesla and SpaceX rose by $ 6.1 billion (5.4 billion euros) on Friday. This was the result of a recent increase in the Tesla share.
The Tesla share has been on the rise for some time. At the beginning of July, the market value of Elon Musk's car company passed the value of industry colleague Toyota.
