Second-richest man in the world this year; even richer than Microsoft's Bill Gates, at least for now, thanks to
strong Mexican equities market and the performance of his wireless telephone company, America Movil. The son of a Lebanese immigrant, Slim made his first fortune in 1990 when he bought fixed line operator Telefonos de Mexico (Telmex) in a privatization. In December, America Movil struck a deal with Yahoo to provide mobile Web services to 16 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
A widower and father of six, Slim is a baseball fan and art collector.
He keeps his art collection in Mexico City's Museo Soumaya, which he named after his late wife.[from forbes].
