Recently, Forbes magazine released its list of billionaires in 2023.
Topping the list of 2,640 billionaires is Bernard Arnault, chairman of the board of directors of the LVMH holding.

There are 26 billionaires from Turkey on the list, including popular names such as Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg. After the list that contributed to the emergence of very interesting data with billionaires in 2023, Forbes published a new list.
Forbes ranked the richest cities in the world by the number of billionaires. Accordingly, 101 out of 2,640 billionaires live in New York.
In other words, New York is the city with the most billionaires in the world. This is despite the fact that 6 billionaires have left the city since last year. For this reason, New York can be called the “capital of billionaires.” On the other hand, New York holds the title of the richest city in the world with 101 billionaires. The total wealth of New York billionaires is $616.8 billion. But almost a quarter of New York’s wealth belongs to Michael Bloomberg, the city’s richest citizen, and Julia Koch, New York’s second-highest billionaire.
