The world’s biggest philanthropist recently solidified his position as the world’s richest man, yet again.

According to investments that have been tracked by Business Insider, Founder of Microsoft Bill Gates is at least $6 billion richer right now than he was about six months ago.

Two months ago, it was hard to determine if Bill Gates still held onto his number 1 spot as the world’s richest man. Forbes put Gates has a net worth at $82 billion, which puts him in the No. 2 spot behind Mexican telecom magnate Carlos Slim, who’s worth $85.4 billion. Bur according to Bloomberg, Gates is still the world’s richest man, worth about $86.5 billion, with Slim at No. 2.

“A billion here. A billion there. The point is, everyone agrees that Gates is unbelievably wealthy and getting richer all the time,” a Business Insider report which is focused on Bill Gate’s financial adviser of twenty years, Michael Larson.

The Wall Street Journal reveals that Gates hired Larson when his net worth was a ‘paltry’ $5 billion. He runs Gates’ personal investment company Cascade Investment LLC, funded solely by the Microsoft founder.

Gates is famous for his good deeds around the world done in partnership with his wife, Melinda through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The foundation recently made its biggest gift in its history, valued at $50 million, towards fighting the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
