Twenty years ago today, Bill Gates announced that he was stepping down as the CEO of Microsoft, which he founded with Paul Allen in 1975 and helped build into one of the top tech companies in the world. Now, he has a net worth of over $100 billion.

20年前的今天,比尔·盖茨宣布辞去微软首席执行官一职。1975年,他与保罗·艾伦共同创立了微软,并协助其发展成为世界顶级科技公司之一。而现在,他的净资产超过1000亿美元。

In 2017, it emerged Gates was donating 64 million Microsoft shares, worth about $4.6 billion, which reduced his stake to just over 1 percent. Since its launch, the 64-year-old has poured money into the philanthropic charity he runs with his wife, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which helps to eradicate disease and improve healthcare in developing nations.

2017年,比尔·盖茨捐赠了6400万股微软股份,价值约46亿美元,这使盖茨的持股比例降至略高于1%。自成立以来,这位64岁的老人向他和妻子共同经营的慈善机构比尔·盖茨基金会投入了大量资金,该基金会致力于帮助发展中国家根除疾病和改善医疗保健。

On the rich list, he is second only to Amazon's Jeff Bezos. So, after distilling his Microsoft stake and donating billions to charity, it begs the question: how on earth is Gates maintaining that vast fortune?

他在富豪榜上的排名仅次于亚马逊公司的杰夫·贝佐斯。因此,在将自己在微软的股份提取出来,并将数十亿美元捐给慈善机构后,这也引出了一个疑问:盖茨到底是如何保留那笔巨额财富呢?

To start, it helps that Microsoft has become a thriving company, with a share price that has quadrupled under the leadership of current CEO Satya Nadella, according to metrics from analysts at Statista.

首先,根据Statista分析师的数据,微软已经成为一家蒸蒸日上的公司,其股价在现任首席执行官萨蒂亚·纳德拉的领导下翻了四番。

And Gates' remaining 1 percent stake is still valued at a casual $7 billion, Business Insider reported.

据《商业内幕》报道,比尔·盖茨剩余的1%的股份仍有70亿美元的估值。
