According to agency estimates, these 4% of Amazon are estimated at about $ 38 billion. This is enough for Mackenzie to take 22 place in the list of 500 richest people in the world according to Bloomberg. Jeff Bezos will maintain about 12% of the company’s shares, which means that he will continue to be considered the richest person on the planet.

Jeff Bezos and Mackenzie have been married for over 25 years – the spouse was one of the first employees of Amazon. The parties have repeatedly stressed that they are parted as friends.
