World’s richest man loses $11 billion after LVMH stock rout

World’s richest man, Bernard Arnault, lost around $11.2 billion from his fortune in one day due to the softening of the US economy, which is likely to dampen luxury goods demand. The investor of LVMH, offering brands such as Louis Vuitton, Moet & Chandon, and Christian Dior, experienced a 5% fall in LVMH shares in Paris. Despite the shares’ slump, Arnault still has a net worth of $191.6 billion, having added $29.5 billion so far this year. Deutsche Bank analysts forecast that the international investors may become selective with European luxury stocks due to slowing growth in the US, which might affect the LVMH share price as well.
