According to a report published by Bloomberg's billionaire index, Jeff Bezos has assumed the title of world's richest person, having amassed a net worth of over $105 billion.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos worth is now more than that of Microsoft CEO Bill Gates.

Bezos and Gates have been fighting for the top spot for a while; Bezos was briefly the richest man in the world in July, before his share prices dropped a few hours later. Forbes, another media conglomerate who tracks the net worths of the world's richest, estimated that Bezos's fortune is at $104.4 billion, which is almost parallel with Bloomberg's projections.

When Amazon stock climbed 1.4 per cent Monday, it added approximately $1.4 billion to Bezos' net worth.

Bezos also controls closely held space exploration business Blue Origin and the Washington Post.

Gates' previous record of richest person ever was set in April 1999, when he passed the $100 billion mark during the internet stock bubble.

Bill Gates takes a place in the runner-up position with an equally staggering net worth of over $92 billion.

According to a Bloomberg analysis, Gates' publicly disclosed donations show he has donated 700 million shares of Microsoft, worth $61.8 billion at today's value, along with $2.9 billion in cash.

Although Bezos' wealth is the largest overall figure, it does not compare to famously wealthy individuals in the past.
