Less than two weeks after Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index declared Mark Zuckerberg the 29th richest person on Earth, the Facebook founder has fallen off the list entirely.
Bloomberg’s index measures only the wealth of the top 40 richest people in the world, and as of now, Zuckerberg is $800,000 behind the current No. 40 on the list — Luis Carlos Sarmiento, a septuagenarian who controls more than a quarter of Columbia’s financial industry.
Of course, no one is suggesting you feel bad for the 28-year-old newlywed — as of Tuesday his estimated net worth was still a whopping $14.7 billion, according to Bloomberg. But on the other hand, the guy did lose $4.7 billion in just 11 days — at least on paper.
Zuckerberg’s net worth reached a peak of $19.4 billion on May 18, the first day of the Facebook IPO, when shares of the company closed at $38.23.
By Tuesday, Facebook shares had dropped to just $28.84 a share, and Zuckerberg’s fortune was down to $14.7 billion.
