The coronavirus pandemic has made super-rich people around the world even richer, according to a study by consulting firm PwC and the main Swiss bank UBS. According to the data they published, during the coronavirus pandemic, the total wealth of the world's billionaires increased to 10.2 trillion dollars.

At the same time, millions of people around the world lost their jobs.

UBS also announced that the wealth of billionaires has reached a new maximum. The increase in their wealth was partly due to the recovery of stock markets and stocks, and their investments in ‘fast-growing’ areas such as technology and healthcare proved to be new drivers of wealth, the study shows.

Billionaires profited even more from the crisis as they bought more shares of companies at a time when markets around the world were collapsing. And the number of billionaires has reached a new maximum. Today there are 2189 of them, while in 2017 there were 2158. All of them have a fortune of more than a billion dollars.

The richest man in the world is still the head of the American company Amazon Jeff Bezos.

It's normal that companies such Amazon, Aliexpress, Wish, Alibaba, etc, increases profit.. Because, during this pandemic, due to limited traffic and selling nets, survives those who already have experience and reduces costs because of very big supplies.. Thank you for your article..

Once rich, always rich, it is important what kind of person you are in your soul, whether you are rich.
