The net worth of the world’s richest person Bill Gates hit $90 billion on Friday thanks in large part to his holdings in two companies.

At $90 billion, the Microsoft Corp. co-founder’s net worth is equal to 0.5 percent of U.S. GDP and $5 billion larger than the entire GDP of Sri Lanka.

Gates’s fortune is now $13.5 billion bigger than that of the world’s second-wealthiest person, Spanish retail mogul Amancio Ortega.

Gates has been the richest person in the world on-and-off since 1995 thanks in large part to his role in founding Microsoft.
