There are 2,781 billionaires worldwide who have a combined fortune of $14.2 trillion. Taylor Swift has made it into the select club of the super-rich for the first time.

Bernard Arnault leads the billionaires' club for the second time in a row. No one made more profit in 2024 than Mark Zuckerberg. Only 369 of the world's billionaires are female, which corresponds to around 13 percent. The richest of them is once again Françoise Bettencourt Meyers, heiress to the L'Oréal fortune.
