This Man Just Became Richer Than Warren Buffett

Amancio Ortega, founder of clothing retailer Zara, is now the second-richest man in the world, knocking legendary investor Warren Buffett into third place.

The 79-year-old who hails from Spain is worth over $71.5 billion as of June 2, 2015, according to Bloomberg. Bill Gates remains the world's richest man with a net worth of over $85.5 billion.

Buffet's net worth of $70.2 billion — over $1 billion shy of Ortega's new total — drops him well into third.

According to Business Insider:

Ortega founded fast-fashion giant Zara with his then-wife Rosalia in 1975. Today, his retail company Intidex SA — which owns Zara, as well as Massimo Dutti and Pull&Bear — has over 6,600 outposts around the world. Zara in of itself is changing retail forever.

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon recently became a billionaire for the first time as stocks of the company surged. He now has an estimated $1.1 billion net worth.
