Jeff Bezos Sells $2 billion Worth Of His Amazon Stock

According to a new report by Forbes, American investor and second richest man in te world, Jeff Bezos has sold $2b worth of his stock in Amazon, the world’s biggest retailer.

 

Bezos sold the shares earlier this week while he was in Glasgow at the COP26 climate summit.

The sale came as Bezos, the world’s second-richest person, promised in a speech at the summit that he will spend $2 billion from his Earth Fund on restoring nature and transforming food systems.

“We must conserve what we still have, we must restore what we’ve lost, and we must grow what we need to live without degrading the planet for future generations to come,” Bezos said during his talk in Glasgow.

The sale, after accounting for capital gains taxes, barely changes his net worth. As of Friday, November 5, Bezos is worth $199.4 billion, Forbes estimates. He trails the number one richest, Elon Musk (worth an estimated $317 billion), by about $118 billion.

Bezos has sold more than $8.8 billion worth of Amazon stock this year. Since taking Amazon public in 1998, the founder of the e-commerce giant has sold some $29 billion worth of Amazon shares, Forbes calculates; his stake in the company has gone from 42% in 1997 to just under 10% currently.
