A shocking announcement that's taken many people by surprise as there wasn't any lead-up to this at all. Emotions aside, what's at stake is also the world's 4th-biggest fortune (approximately US$146 billion). The big question lies in the couple's foundation (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), the family office and to what extent are they planning to work together. Gates' wealth could also be a tricky one. I'm wondering how their investments will be split up😳What's your guess?
I read they will still work together in the foundation.
but won't be surprise if they split ("decouple") as an excuse to liquidate some cash for their own or their children's needs and wants, which otherwise will be difficult to liquidate.
also will be interested to see how Melinda will want to be known as in future (still use last name Gates or back to her maiden name).
