Slim was born in Mexico City, Mexico. His father, Julián Slim, a Maronite Catholic, immigrated to Mexico City from Lebanon at the age of 14. His father, Julián, established a dry goods store called La Estrella del Oriente (Star of the Orient) in 1911 and purchased real estate in downtown Mexico City. He and his wife had six children, of whom Carlos was the youngest boy. His mother is also Lebanese. Slim is a Mexican businessman largely focused on the telecommunications industry. He is the second richest man in the world with a net worth of around U.S. $60 billion through his holdings.
Great to see Lebanese making it into the top 3 list.
