Of all the current billionaires in the world, only 11 realistically have a chance of becoming trillionaires during their lifetime, based on their recent rate of wealth growth. An average yearly percentage growth over the past five years on future years has been applied, to estimate how long it would take to reach the trillion-dollar mark. Just like Jeff Bezos was the first centibillionaire in the world, he is on track to becoming the world’s first trillionaire in 2026 at age 62. Mark Zuckerberg could be the world’s youngest trillionare at age 51, but that will not be until 2036. Notably missing is Microsoft founder Bill Gates, who was the second person to become a centibillionaire, but with an average yearly growth of only 5 per cent, he would not become a trillionaire in his lifetime.
