The Amazon founder will be looking to his laurels as L’Oréal heiress Françoise Bettencourt Meyers looks set to catch up to the $100 billion mark in just nine years time, RS Components reports.
There are four other multi-billionaire women climbing the rung too, among them Bezos’ ex-wife Mackenzie Bezos.
Mackenzie, 49, has a tidy $39.1 billion now, and is set to reach $100 billion in 16 years, at which time she will be 65 years old.
The novelist, who has two children with Bezos, said she and her ex will remain “cherished friends” after 25 years of marriage.
Yang Huiyan, 38, is the youngest woman on the list and is likely to join the centi-billion club when she’s 62 years old as the majority shareholder of Country Garden.
According to South China Morning Post, her father Yang Guoqiang was a self-made tycoon after firstly working as a farmer because he could not afford to go to school.
Gina Rinehart, 65, of Hancock Prospecting, currently has the lowest net worth on the list — $15.5 billion — but analysts still think she will make the $100 billion mark in just 20 years.
Meanwhile 80-year-old Jacqueline Mars will be at the advanced age of 108 if she is to make the $100 billion list, having $38.8 billion today.
