现在世界上有三位千亿富翁

第三位千亿富翁来自欧洲。

欧洲首富伯纳德·阿诺特成功跻身世界顶级富豪俱乐部,成为继杰夫·贝佐斯和比尔·盖茨之后,又一位身家超过千亿美元的世界富豪。

阿诺特是奢侈品集团路威酩轩的董事长。6月18日,路威酩轩的股价上涨2.9%,至每股368.8欧元的历史最高点,帮助阿诺特跻身千亿富翁行列。今年他的个人净值几乎增长了320亿美元,是彭博亿万富翁指数中涨幅最大的一位。

在彭博2019年富翁排行榜上,法国亿万富翁的财富增幅居欧洲之首。除了阿诺特,开云集团的老板弗朗索瓦·皮诺和欧莱雅的继承人弗朗索瓦丝·贝当古·迈耶斯的个人资产共计增加了400多亿美元。与此同时,总部设在巴黎的香水和时尚产品集团香奈儿披露了2018年业绩后,品牌所有者杰拉德和阿兰·韦特海默兄弟的身家在6月中旬猛增98亿美元。

阿诺特目前的财富为1004亿美元,超过法国GDP的3%,凸显了法国的贫富差距——今年法国抗议者一直要求富人出钱为民众谋福利。尽管贸易紧张局势不断升级,中国消费者对路易威登手包和轩尼诗干邑的需求仍然为路威酩轩的业绩注入了动力,该集团的其他产品还包括唐培里侬香槟和泰格豪雅手表。今年路威酩轩的股价已经上涨43%,在法国CAC 40指数中排名第三。

今年4月巴黎圣母院在大火中严重损毁后,一批奢侈品大亨承诺为重建捐款逾6.5亿美元,其中就包括70岁的阿诺特及其家人。路威酩轩的总部设在巴黎,阿诺特通过家族持股公司控制着该集团的约一半股份。同时,1949年出生的阿诺特还拥有迪奥97%的股权,而该时尚品牌的创立时间比他的出生时间还要早三年。

阿诺特通过收购一家拥有迪奥品牌的纺织集团进入了奢侈品市场。1988年,他转让了该纺织集团的所有其他业务,并用所得资金拿下了路威酩轩的控股权。

微软的联合创始人盖茨已经向比尔及梅琳达·盖茨基金会捐款350多亿美元。今年年初和麦肯齐·贝佐斯协议离婚后,亚马逊的首席执行官贝佐斯的个人净值下降了400亿美元。(财富中文网)

Bernard Arnault, Europe’s richest person, just joined Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates in the world’s most exclusive wealth club with a fortune of at least $100 billion.

Arnault, chairman of LVMH, entered the ranks of centibillionaires on June 18 as the luxury-goods maker climbed 2.9% to a record 368.80 euros a share. His net worth has increased almost $32 billion this year, the most on the 500-member Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

France’s multibillionaires have added the most wealth among European members of Bloomberg’s ranking in 2019, with Arnault, Kering SA’s Francois Pinault and cosmetics heir Francoise Bettencourt Meyers tacking on more than $40 billion between them. Meanwhile, the brothers behind the Chanel brand, Gerard and Alain Wertheimer, saw their fortunes soar $9.8 billion in the middle of June after the Parisian fragrance and fashion house reported its 2018 results.

Arnault’s fortune of $100.4 billion now equals more than 3% of France’s economy, underscoring the wealth gap in his native country, where protesters have agitated this year for more benefits paid for by the rich. Even amid growing trade tensions, Chinese consumers’ appetite for Louis Vuitton handbags and Hennessy cognac has bolstered results for LVMH, the owner of Dom Perignon Champagne and Tag Heuer watches. The company’s shares have surged 43% this year, the third-best performer on France’s CAC 40 Index.

Arnault, 70, and his family are among luxury tycoons who pledged more than $650 million in April for the reconstruction of Notre Dame Cathedral after the landmark church was ravaged by fire. He controls about half of Paris-based LVMH through a family holding company and also owns a 97% stake in Christian Dior, the fashion house founded three years before his birth in 1949.

Arnault entered the luxury-goods market by acquiring a textile group that owned Christian Dior. He sold all of the company’s other businesses and used the proceeds to buy a controlling stake in LVMH in 1988.

Gates, the Microsoft Corp. co-founder, has donated more than $35 billion to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Amazon.com Inc.’s Bezos, meanwhile, saw his net worth drop $40 billion earlier this year after reaching a divorce settlement with MacKenzie Bezos.
