Bernard Arnault is the billionaire chairman and CEO of French luxury giant LVMH and currently the richest person in Europe and the fourth richest in the world with a total net worth of $92.6 billion, according to Forbes data.
The 71-year-old was born in France to a father who was a successful construction businessman, Forbes reported. In 2019, he earned an estimated profit of 35.1 billion euros, or approximately $38.6 billion.

The married father of five – whom the outlet described as being “one of the world's ultimate taste-makers” – oversees more than 70 luxury brands, including Louis Vuitton, Moet Chandon, Sephora, Dior and, most recently, Tiffany & Co.
And Arnault, himself, enjoys the luxuries in life. He has been reported to take his 333-foot yacht, Symphony, to the islands of St. Barths and Dominica during the holidays.
A documentary about his life, “Bernard Arnault: L'enfance est un Destine (Childhood is a Destiny)” aired in February 2012.
Arnault joined the world’s $100 billion – or "centibillionaires" – club in June, after Louis Vuitton reached a record $368.80 euros, or $406.27, per share.
