Mark Zuckerberg’s net worth surpassed $100 billion for the first time after Facebook Inc. hit a record high.
The 36-year-old joins Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates as the only people in the world with centibillionaire status, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Zuckerberg has gained about $22 billion this year, while Bezos has added over $75 billion.
Zuckerberg’s fortune is largely derived from his 13% stake in Facebook.
The social media giant founder has said he plans to give away 99% of his Facebook shares over his lifetime.
