However, on October 15, the LVMH group, which owns brands such as Bulgari, Guerlain and Dom Pérignon, reported a 21 percent drop in revenue in the first nine months of 2020. Revenue from the sale of cosmetics, beverages, jewelry and retail in the third quarter was lower than in the same period last year.

At the same time, revenue from sales of apparel and leather goods increased by 12 percent, including due to strong sales of the houses of Louis Vuitton and Dior.

At the end of May, Arno returned his ultra-rich status. His fortune again exceeded $ 100 billion. Arnault is currently ranked second on Forbes’ real-time billionaires ranking with a fortune of $ 122.3 billion. He is second only to the founder AmazonJeff Bezos with a fortune of $ 188.6 billion.
