What is Carlos Slim Helu's net worth? Carlos Slim Helu is a Mexican businessman and the current richest person in the world with a net worth of $68.5 billion. Carlos Slim Helu was born January 28, 1940 in Mexico City, Mexico. He is a businessman, philanthropist, and engineer largely focused on the telecommunications industry in Mexico. Slim has a substantial influence over the telecommunications industry in Mexico and much of Latin America. He controls Telefonos De Mexico, TelCel, and America Movil. He maintains an active involvement in the companies, but his three sons Carlos, Marco Antonio, and Patrick, run the firms on a day to day basis. Slim was able to raise money for a telecommunications business by purchasing standby letters of credit which allowed him to obtain guaranteed loans which provided the capital. On August 8, 2007 Fortune magazine reported that Slim had surpassed Bill Gates in wealth. This marked the first time in 16 years that the wealthiest person in the world has not been from the United States, the Middle East, or Europe and was from an "emerging economy". Slim has been awarded the Entrepreneurial Merit Medal of Honor from Mexico's Chamber Of Commerce. He is a "gold patron" of the American Academy of Achievement and a Commander in the Belgian Order Of Leopold II. Slim was named CEO of the year in 2003 by "Latin Trade" magazine, and one year later CEO of the decade by the same magazine.
Carlos Slim Helu (Spanish pronunciation: ['ka?los es'lim e'lu]; born January 28, 1940) is a Mexican business magnate and philanthropist who is currently ranked as the richest person in the world in 2012. Slim has been ranked the richest person in the world since 2010. His extensive holdings in a considerable number of Mexican companies through his conglomerate, Grupo Carso, SA de CV, have amassed interests in the fields of communications, technology, retailing, and finance. Presently he is the chairman and chief executive of telecommunications companies Telmex and America Movil.
America Movil, which in 2010 was Latin America's largest mobile-phone carrier, accounted for around US$49 billion of Slim's wealth by the end of 2010. His corporate holdings as of March 2012 have been estimated at US$69 billion.
Slim was born in Mexico City, Mexico in 1940 to Maronite Christian parents Julian Slim Haddad and Linda Helu, both of Lebanese descent. His father, born Khalil Slim Haddad, immigrated to Mexico at the age of 14 in 1902 and changed his first name to Julian. As it was not uncommon for Lebanese children to be sent abroad before they reached the age of 15 to avoid being conscripted into the Ottoman army, four of Haddad's older brothers were already living in Mexico at the time of his arrival.
Carlos Slim's mother, Linda Helu, was born in Parral, Chihuahua, of Lebanese parents who had immigrated to Mexico in the late 19th century. Her parents upon immigrating to Mexico had founded one of the first Arabic language magazines for the Lebanese-Mexican community, using a printing press they had brought with them.
In 1911, Julian established a dry goods store, La Estrella del Oriente (The Star of the Orient). By 1921, he had purchased real estate in the flourishing commercial district of Mexico City. These enterprises became the source of considerable wealth.
In August 1926, Julian Slim and Linda Helu married. They had six children: Nour, Alma, Julian, Jose, Carl
