Carlos Slim Helu remains the world’s richest person after the U.S. and Mexican markets closed Monday, hanging on to his lead in front of Bill Gates by less than $250 million, Forbes estimates.
Slim finished Monday with an estimated net worth of $67.2 billion, just a squeak ahead of Gates, whose net worth Forbes pegs at $67 billion. Microsoft shares — which account for less than 20% of Gates’ net worth — rose a scant 0.2% on Monday. Slim’s net worth has fallen $5.8 billion since we locked in stock prices for our 2013 list of the World’s Billionaires on February 14, fueled by a drop in the price of America Movil stock, his largest holding.
