Musk, the world’s richest man, currently has an estimated net worth of $263 billion – with an annual average increase of 129%.

Bezos, once expected to be the world’s first trillionaire, is not predicted to become one until he’s 65 years old in 2030, according to the study.

Indian billionaire Gautam Adani and his family, who own the commodity trading business Adani Group, would become a trillionaire a year behind Musk, reaching trillionaire status in 2025 at his current rate of growth.

Founder and chairman of Beijing ByteDance Technology Company Zhang Yiming is in third place on the list, which predicts he will become a trillionaire by age 42 in 2016.

This would make him the youngest billionaire to achieve trillionaire status.

Indian businessman Mukesh Ambani is fourth on the list and expected to reach trillionaire status in 2029, when he will be 64.

Tied in fourth place is Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive of Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH), who is predicted to reach trillionaire status in 2029.
